MILLINGTON, NJ - Len Soucy, the founder of the Raptor Trust in Millington passed away on June 11. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 28 at 1 p.m. at the Dorothy Young Center for the Arts on the Drew University campus in Madison, NJ.

For over 20 years, the Raptor Trust has provided free care to injured, sick or abandoned wild birds in our region. 

Len Soucy made a life of making lives better. Whether saving avian lives at The Raptor Trust, educating others on the diversity and value of wild animals in our lives, or studying raptor populations so that we humans could learn more about them and live better with them, Len’s was truly a life well lived stated on the Rator Trust website.

In honor of that lifetime of work toward the protection and preservation of all things wild, especially birds, and the educational opportunities he labored to present, the Leonard J. Soucy Jr. Memorial Fund has been established for projects that would be meaningful to Soucy. His commitment to a thriving avian population will live on, with special support for new ideas and approaches from the Memorial Fund.

Donations to the fund can be directed to The Len Soucy Memorial Fund, c/o The Raptor Trust, 1390 White Bridge Road, Millington, NJ 07946.
