For our “Phase 1”, we have now completed two buildings on this property. We completely gutted the building (below left) and added all new electrical (thank you Mike Scriver; electrician!). We also had a new well dug (Herb Land Well Drilling did this for the turtles free of charge!), and new furnace and plumbing. The rest was mainly done with a lot of elbow grease from some amazing volunteers. The finished result for the first building is shown below (right) and this building has been in use all season, allowing more room at our main centre for admissions!
We thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation, the Gordon and Patricia Gray Animal Welfare Foundation, the Rotary Club of Barrie and all our amazing supporters, for making this project happen!
