Meigs Point Nature Center is an exciting and vital environmental learning center open to all ages at Hammonasset Beach State Park, one of the most beautiful sites within the Connecticut State Park system.  Many of the programs at the Nature Center are funded through donations from the Friends of Hammonasset.
 
The Meigs Point Nature Center is an environmental education facility run and operated by the Department of Environmental Protection. It is our belief that one of the best ways to protect and preserve our environment and natural resource is through education. The more people know about the importance and uniqueness of Connecticut’s environments the more they will want to preserve them.
 
A Place Called Hope is a Rehabilitation and Education Center for Birds of Prey. Our goal is to heal injured, orphaned, or ill birds and return them to the wild where they belong.  Federal permits allow us to house and work with the birds that can not be returned to their natural world provided we share them through educational presentations. These particular birds have become ambassadors and have helped us to educate the public.  They also teach all of us how to co-exist more peacefully with the wildlife in our very own backyards.
 
A Place Called Hope is a 501 c 3 non profit organization run entirely by volunteers along with donations of time, supplies and money from our supporters. If you would like to learn more about how you can help, please send us an email.  If you would like to make a financial contribution please use our donations tab.  Thank you for your continued support. A little goes a long way. http://www.aplacecalledhoperaptors.com/
