North Branch Nature Center's Wish List

Got stuff? Thanks for thinking of NBNC when you're shopping for birdseed, cleaning out your folks' garage, or looking for a place to donate household, lab or office equipment. Please review this list and give us a call with any questions, or if you have something you think we might want that you don't see listed here. Generally you can just drop by with donations whenever we're open (Monday - Friday, 9 - 4), but for ongoing needs (birdseed and firewood), please contact us first: [email protected] or (802) 229-6206 ext. 100. Thank you!
