Thank you for stopping by this page. No matter how you found us, that you are here means the world to us! We hope you will join our cause as we continue to make content and reach people about nature, conservation, and animal ecology!
   
The Urban Interface is a tiny organization based in central Texas. Because of this, money can be a difficult thing to come by, we don’t receive grants or federal support. All of our funding is straight from the public, and all of it goes back to our animals and educational efforts. To make this money, we have traditionally offered educational presentations or booths to schools, libraries, festivals, and events across the state of Texas. We are still going to do that, but this Patreon opens up so many opportunities!
  
Running a nonprofit is hard work; made harder by the fact most of our team maintains other full time jobs beyond this one. We are working overtime to provide you with content that can enrich your life and the lives of those you care about. Even a couple extra dollars helps bring us closer to new projects, paid staff, and new educational opportunities. 

We’re working to bridge the gaps between people and nature in order to engage them with our amazing world, inspire them to creation, and earn their interest in supporting nature conservation wherever they may be. Patreon is a chance for us to try reach new classrooms, connect with people across the country, and maybe make a few dollars. The best part is, we can give you something in return!

What is the Eyrie?

The Eyrie is a Newsletter dedicated to exploring the intricate and fascinating topics found within the realms of science, nature, education, and conservation. Each month, our team explores a different subject, taking the time to examine the fascinating world around us. With the (mostly) helpful perspectives of our ambassador animals and the insight from our team, this newsletter is chock full of amazing facts, intriguing concepts, and even activities or experiments you can try at home!

$1 Reconnection

With a single dollar a month, you can join our community here and get exclusive access to the ongoing work we do! Not just the programs, but the design of our curriculum, the construction of displays, the daily life of our team, and the constant work we do to keep our animals ready to teach the public.

$3-5 Adopt an Eyrie Ambassador!

While you can't bring our wildlife home with you, we do have the next best thing! Our team works very closely with our animals, and with their help, you can become closer than ever to some amazing animals!

Whether you’re a parent with kids, a teacher with a class, or even just a person looking to connect with nature in new ways, symbolically adopting one of our ambassadors is a great option! Just a few dollars a month will allow you to receive regular updates about our animals. Not only that, but you will get our monthly issue of the The Eyrie as we discuss the variety of topics surrounding the natural world!

When you select a specific animal to adopt, you will also get to help fund their care specifically. As a thank you, you will also receive an exclusive digital sticker of your selected animal(s) and a digital certificate of “adoption” showing your support of their continued care!

$10 I Give a Flock!

Get everything mentioned above but help our flock of pigeons! Your support will symbolically adopt our pigeon ambassadors, who require extra care and attention! In addition to the regular rewards, you will receive exclusive content about our upcoming projects, ideas, and developments as well as the ability give more direct input into our future content!
Your money goes directly to the care of our animals, allowing us to free up some of our other money to build displays, develop our business, and even potentially pay our people sometime down the road.
