  • During the COVID crisis you will need to call ahead and reserve a tour time. It is well worth the time to see hawks, eagles and other predators.. Mammals and reptiles are also residents at the Center  more »
  • We've only been to the Center in January for the last three years, so our experience is X-C ski related only. But we love the site and recommend it highly.  more »
  • I absolutely love this place. It is a great rehabilitation center for out wildlife and a great education center for families to learn more about it wildlife. I have been coming to the wildlife center since I was a little girl and now my daughter has the opportunity to come to be a part of this experience. We recently saved a baby bunny a Northwoods Cotton tail which we brought to the center to be check over and cared for until it is safe to be released back into the wild. They dubbed her Cinnabon. My daughter was super excited knowing she will be well cared for. I would recommend this experience to the young and old a like. The center is funded by any donation you are able to share this helps to keep the center going and for the care of the injured and rehabilitated wildlife. Go enjoy, you won't regret your visit.
  • They were the closest 24 hour rescue place and we had 7 baby bunnies my dog found. They were so little their eyes weren't even open!! The girl working the night shift was very nice and accommodating.
