We are an all-volunteer group organized in 2002 for the purpose of supporting the Dwight R. Chamberlain Raptor Rehabilitation Center and the lake property at Hardy Lake in Scott County Indiana. The donations we collect go toward rehabilitating and eventual release of raptors back into the wild. The center also cares for permanently injured Hawks, Owls, Falcons, and a bald Eagle. The birds are used as educational ambassadors throughout Indiana. They are taken to organizations such as schools, nursing homes, and civic groups. We are the only state owned raptor hospital. The state furnishes the building, utilities, and pays our Naturalist, but all other costs such as veterinary bills, medical supplies, food, and equipment is covered by our work AND YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS. Thank you for supporting the Friends of Hardy Lake & The Dwight Chamberlin Raptor Center.
