The Open Door Bird Sanctuary is looking to tip the scale on Saturday with the health of its eagles on its mind. The sanctuary will be inviting people to donate to their cause by dropping their spare change into a bucket on top of a scale, with a goal of reaching twenty pounds. Currently, the sanctuary doesn’t have a scale large enough or one with a perch for an eagle. The eagles weigh a combined twenty pounds based on estimations since the last time they were reliably measured was before the sanctuary acquired them. The twenty-pound goal symbolizes the eagles' weight, which sanctuary Executive Director Rob Hultz believes will get them there. He also says the scale will be beneficial to the eagles’ health.
The fundraiser will start at The Spoon in Sturgeon Bay at 11:00 AM on Saturday, May 22nd and some of the resident raptors will be present. ODBS will have a series of events in the near future, including their first Raptor Ramble on June 3rd.
