At Roan Mountain, we house, care for, and educate the public on a variety of native animals. We work under an educational permit from TWRA. Currently, we care for three birds of prey and several snakes! As you can imagine, caring for these animals is costly, as their food and health care are a specialty!
All of our animals are non-releasable for a variety of reasons. We frequently program with these animals and never charge for educational programs when using them. Here is your opportunity to support our educational wildlife program and help us care for these animals! 
All donations will go to purchase food, pay vet bills, purchase gloves, tethers, falconry equipment, aquarium bedding, and to improve and build more housing facilities for our non-releasable birds of prey.
To donate click the green “Register for Event” button at the right. Your donation is a one-time payment. If you wish to cover more than one day, update the “ quantity” you wish to donate, or simply return to this page in future months.  
Thank you for supporting our Wildlife Ambassadors at Roan Mountain State Park!

Tie Dye for Grownups! – 2 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. – Meet at Shelter 3. Price is $10.00/ Adult 2x, Adult XL, Adult L, Adult M, Adult SM. Register for the event. While commonly associated with counterculture of the 1960’s tie-dye is a traditional resist-dye technique that dates back to 5th century China, and was introduced to the United States in 1909.  In this 90 minute workshop, you’ll learn basic and intermediate tie-dye techniques, including the art and science of:
– Preparing and choosing fabrics
– Color theory & preparing dyes
– Tie Methods (it’s more than rubber bands!)
– Dye Application techniques
– Treating dyed items to ensure color-fastness

If you have never tie-dyed before OR if you’ve been disappointed with previous results, this workshop will build your confidence and get you off to a great start. It’s a little bit of science, a bit of creativity, and a LOT of fun! Workshop fee includes dyes & supplies to create one t-shirt in specified size (participants are welcome to bring additional items to use with any leftovers).  *Workshop participants should be aged 16 or older.  **3X, 4X, and 5X t-shirts are available, please contact program leader for extended sizing.
