Wildlife Rehab Center


The long-awaited wildlife rehabilitation facility has now found a home on the Union campus near our facilities management building. Our focus is on raptor rehabilitation. The caged portion of the building has been constructed large enough to house an eagle while being rehabilitated but has been designed so that partitioning can occur to house other birds of prey as there should be few eagles that come through our program. Please follow the photographic progression of our facility.

If you would like to donate to the cause, please contact Dr. James Huggins at jhuggins@uu.edu. For more coverage check the October 4, 2002, Cardinal and Cream article.
