The Golden Bear Circle:
There are two different levels to contribute to Creekspirit Wildlife Foundation as part of the Golden Bear Circle.
Bear Cub Golden Circle ($250)
Bear Cub - A donation of $250 sponsors the creation of a Golden Bear mosaic, 7-1/2” x 4” in size, handmade by Patti Jacquemain. A limited number of Golden Bears will be mounted permanently on the soffit in the Dome of the Great Bear in the donor’s name or the name of someone the donor wishes to have remembered. Each Golden Bear is hand cut from Baltic birch and covered with 24k gold leaf mosaic tiles from Italy. $60 of the donation will go to repay the Foundation for the materials from which the Golden Bear is made; the remainder will go to the Creekspirit Wildlife Library’s acquisition fund, to be used to purchase books and other library materials in support of Creekspirit’s mission.
Papa Bear Golden Circle ($1,000)
Papa Bear - A donation of $1,000 sponsors the creation of a larger Golden Bear mosaic, 11” x 6-1/2” in size, also handmade by Patti Jacquemain of the same materials and installed in the Dome of the Great Bear. In addition to repaying the Foundation for materials ($80), the remainder of the donation ($920) will be equally divided between the Creekspirit Wildlife Library’s acquisition fund, its educational publications fund, and its “Wildlife in Need” program.
