  • We used to take our kids here all the time! I love going there now for all the wild bird supplies they have!  more »
  • I visit this location very often. I love how they rehabilitate the animals and keep those who may never be released back to the wild. Very educational and lots to learn. Description cards with valuable information is everywhere. They hold a lot of events that will educate you and your children. Love the small trails. The bunny loop trail is my favorite, they hold outdoor activities on the platform. You can also donate while you are there, or you could stop at the gift shop to remember your day. Great place to take photos and create memories. Very safe as well, police and fire station is right next door.
  • I can't believe that it's free to go here! They have such cool animals to look at and learn about while there! They also take in injured birds and help explain what they will do for them so you can use it as a good learning experience. They answered all of our questions and offered to keep us updated on what will happen with the bird. I can't wait to go back!
