The Burlington Science Center would like to announce its new animal weathering enclosure at BHS!

This animal enclosure is located outside the Burlington High School Cafeteria.

This cage will provide an area for animals to receive exercise, fresh air, and enrichment (stimulation). The cage will also provide natural sunlight, therefore enhancing vitamin production within the animal.

Our amputee Red-tailed Hawk, Cheveyo

This cage was generously built and donated by the Russell Family of Burlington.  Kevin, Jean, Kobe, and Maya worked on the cage this past summer.

Premier Fence of Avon, MA made a generous donation of over 50 feet of post and rail fence to surround the enclosure.

Some of the animals who will benefit from this enclosure are the Red-tail hawk, Red-footed Tortoises and Silkie Bantam chickens.  BHS students can enjoy watching these animals during their lunch.

The Science Center always dreamed of having an outdoor cage for their animals.  We can not express how thankful we are to those who contributed to this project!

Be sure to check the BHS school newspaper (The Devil’s Advocate) for an upcoming article about the enclosure.
