You can't keep a bobcat in your backyard or a fox in the family room, but you can do the next best thing! Adopt an animal in the Ralph Perkins II Wildlife Center & Woods Garden through the Adopt a Wild Child program. Your gift helps underwrite the care and feeding of the Museum's animals. It also makes it possible for us to offer them a range of activities that enrich their lives.
Bring something a little bit wild into your life—or someone else's—and adopt an animal today! Fill out the adoption form and submit it online or print it out the page and mail it with your payment to Development Department, The Cleveland Museum of Natural History, 1 Wade Oval Drive, Cleveland OH 44106. For more information, contact Harvey Webster, director of wildlife resources, at 216-231-4600 x3290 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
