Opened in 1981, the Museum is a community center that celebrates the life and work of Wendell Gilley, a pioneer in the field of decorative bird carving. It teaches the art of bird carving and presents art exhibitions and educational programs with a special focus on people, nature and art. The Museum endeavors to inspire appreciation of the visual arts, engagement in artistic creativity, and respect and care for the natural world.
Come wander the grounds, view the carved panels adorning the museum building, and listen to the newly installed Kingfisher fountain. This summer the Museum presents a different twist on bird carving.
