TRT Day of Impact

Make a difference in one day.

Last year, you showed us how much can be accomplished in a day.

This May 23, join us for TRT Day of Impact and save the lives of baby birds this spring.

In our 37+ years, TRT has admitted over 125,000 birds for care. Spring and summer are our busiest time of year, and we’re preparing for the adorable invasion of tiny Robins, Great Horned Owl fluffballs, and baby Blue Jays with an attitude, among hundreds of other youngsters.

The average cost of one bird’s total rehabilitation is currently $237, and, because we admit an average of 5,000-6,000 birds per year, those costs quickly add up. All proceeds from the event provide resources for these busy months– from purchasing food and medicine for injured birds of all ages and species, to maintaining the caging and grounds that visitors can now enjoy.

TRT is committed making a long-term impact. With your help, we will continue to play a major role in conserving local wild bird populations and reducing the suffering of wildlife in the tri-state area.
