Happynest Bird Sanctuary

I've hinted for weeks that we'd hatched a new direction under our Nest family and now I can reveal what is truly in the works.  We are creating a non-profit bird sanctuary called Happynest; still very early in it's infancy, we anticipate opening to the public in some capacity in five years.  It is a largely untouched 7 acres bordering a small river in Southeast Louisiana; the property has a long history of wildlife as Native American arrowheads have been found throughout the land leaving us to believe it was a popular hunting ground.  Currently its home to bobcats, coyotes, bunnies, turtles, and yes, many, many birds.
For now, we plan on creating a website that not only charts our progress but informs and educates people on creating a bird friendly environment, protecting and creating habitats for birds and supportive wildlife, and providing access to quality bird and garden products. 
None of our existing businesses will go away - the brick and mortar, Nest Interiors or online business and blog Cottage Nest; they will now begin to work in concert to grow Happynest as a portion of everything we sell will now go to this non-profit.
I'll keep you posted as once our website is live and when fundraising efforts kick off!  Until then may all your birds be happy!
