Valentine's Day Is Coming

Once upon a time, when a young man wanted to express his sentiments for his sweetheart, it was the custom to carve their initials in the trunk of a tree.

In today’s world we now know that this can be a death knell for the tree—plus, most of us are city dwellers who wouldn’t have a large enough tree handy, even if we did want to deface it in this way. 

However, with Valentine’s Day just around the corner, the World Bird Sanctuary now offers a way to continue this time-honored tradition.   A World Bird Sanctuary inscribed brick can be a perfect and lasting Valentine for your sweetheart without damaging a tree.
Your brick will be installed in our amphitheater stairs or landings and will be a lasting declaration of your love.   For an additional small fee you may purchase a presentation certificate to give your sweetheart on Valentine’s Day to let her know about her brick.

To purchase a 4” X 8” brick with a 3-line message click here.  Bricks are also available in an 8” X 8” size with a 6-line message.  There is a wide selection of stock symbols (such as hearts, cupids, etc.) which can be included in the inscription. 

Your donation will help to support the mission of the World Bird Sanctuary, and all brick donations are tax deductible to the full extent of the law.

Make this Valentine’s Day a memorable one for your spouse, sweetheart or significant other.
