Roads Accessing the Sanctuary Have Changed

There is no longer a detour to get to World Bird Sanctuary, however, smart phone GPS units have not yet been updated to the new road changes to get to our site from the intersections of 141 and 44. The WAZE app is the only one that we know of that will bring you correctly in through all the new road/exit changes.

Proud to Support World Wide Technology, Inc.

We were proud to support World Wide Technology, Inc. at the ribbon cutting ceremony for their new building. A thousand thank yous to Dave Steward, Founder and Chairman of WWT, and his staff for including us in the celebration and challenging us to think “massively.” In Dave’s words to us: “Lean forward. No looking back.”
