The Core Sound Waterfowl Museum & Heritage Center is grateful to those who have made contributions over the years and continue to help meet the needs of this facility and the opportunities of our educational programming. Since the Museum's founding, an amazing progression of individuals, families, and community partners have come to be part of what we call our "Core Sound Family,"  contributing immeasurably to the growth of the museum and preservation of the region's heritage. We hope you'll please consider supporting the museum today.
