Think outside the box! Because Tamarack is a unique place, it offers unique ways to help. Here are a few:

  • Live minnows — we often treat birds that require live fish, but these are extremely expensive to purchase. Donated minnows are a huge help.
  • Frozen fish and venison for birds of prey. Do you have a freezer full of last year’s crappie or deer steaks? Give it to Tamarack!
  • Fresh produce is a staple in the diets of many mammals and songbirds. Check to see what our needs are at any given time of year.
