About FOO

Friends of Oatland Island, Inc. is a 501(c) (3) organization. It was established in 2001 to support Oatland Island Wildlife Center's staff and animal residents.

Board members are all volunteers who work hard on their own time to supplement financial and professional support of the Wildlife Center. It is often said that Friends of Oatland (FOO) is a "working board", fueled by our love of animals, the environment, our community, and specifically Oatland Island.

Great NonProfits Review

Friends of Oatland Island does a fabulous job fundraising and supporting Oatland Island Wildlife center. Going there is fun and educational - no matter what your age is. They have a few events during the year for the public and do a great job of spreading the word about Oatland. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful and the animals are so much fun to visit too!

Engaging Fundraisers

Friends of Oatland not only accepts donations on Oatland Island Wildlife Center's behalf; we also like to hold community fundraisers.

In 2019, FOO launched a new annual holiday fundraiser, Days of Christmas Past. Held at the Heritage Homesites at Oatland Island, we discovered the foundations of holiday customs, saw how homes would have been decorated 100 years ago and visited with with a traditionally styled Santa Claus for visitors young and old to connect with.

Behind the Scenes

FOO's Board of Directors are often found on the grounds of Oatland Island Wildlife Center.

Whether they're making enrichment treats for the animal residents, helping to prepare for one of the center's many events, or working on grants to support the animals and grounds, you'll find them working away to help make your experience a unique one.
