The great outdoors has a lot to offer, and some of our alumni like to take
advantage of that...
Leslie Hayhurst, class of 1968, owns and operates:
Genesis Wildlife Sanctuary, Inc and Genesis Wildlife Conservation Center
Beech Mountain, NC. The sanctuary rescues, rehabilitates and releases wild
The new Conservation Center, not yet complete, will open in the spring of 2001.
At present, some of the non-releaseable animals call that area their "home".
