World Bird Sanctuary is proud to be a host of STL250's Cakeway to the West!

As of 2014, St. Louis turned 250 years old. 

To celebrate the 250th anniversary of the founding of St. Louis, a project known as stl250’s Cakeway to the West has been in the works. Exactly 250 cakes standing four-feet-tall and weighing an approximate 250 pounds will be placed all around the St. Louis region. The locations of the cakes are of vast importance as it helps to celebrate some of the organizations, businesses and historic landmarks which have helped to shape the city of St. Louis in the past, present and the future.
The World Bird Sanctuary is honored to be recognized as one of those locations hosting a cake. The cake has been delivered to the World Bird Sanctuary and it looks magnificent. Many thanks to St. Louis artist, Mark Swain for his beautiful decorative work.
