What a great way to spend an afternoon! We saw the show and it was both fun and educational. The staff is so nice and enthusiastic about what they do. All of the birds are AMAZING! Clean facilities and accessible to all. Tons of Pokemon Go stops and gyms as an added bonus.
What a wonderful place! Early morning is the best time to visit to avoid the crowds and often can see the birds being fed. Eagles, vultures, emu, falcons, hawks and more live until they can be rehabilitated and returned to the wild. Those that can't safely be returned to the wild due to their injuries get to live out their lives here in a safe and healthy environment. The staff here really seem to enjoy and take great pride in their work and are excited to share their efforts with the public.
