The Wildlife Heritage Center and Library

Education and Community Outreach

Dedicated in 1996, the Wildlife Heritage Center contains a fully equipped auditorium that easily accommodates seminars, banquets and conferences. The William F. Brown Memorial Library is filled with wealth of information on the sporting dog, pertaining to breeding, hunting, training, field trialing, conservation, game management and wildlife art.

The Bird Dog Foundation uses the Wildlife Center to educate children and adults alike in the delicate balance between man and nature.

Through its innovative education and outreach programs the Bird Dog Foundation, Inc. seeks to promote the man-dog relationship, especially among our children, and to inspire permanent regard for wildlife in general. Field trips are popular with area schools and youth groups. An annual scholarship essay contest stimulates concern for relative issues and awards financial assistance to the winning college bound high school author. The Foundation also hosts an annual sporting dog art contest which is open to area students of all grades. It is a popular local event that attracts many entrants.

For more information, please contact the Education Coordinator through the contact methods shown at the bottom of this page.
