  • This wildlife center has taken in rescued animals from me and friends...with great results...specifically, a baby squirrel found in the neighbor's garage, 2 baby ducklings whose mother was found dead, injured birds...and when released you will receive a notice that the animal is returned to nature. Only creatures unable to fend for themselves are kept in the center. Children love it! Schools love to bring the children to the exhibits. Great place...been there forever! As far as a previous old post about the facility, I find it well managed and safe - otherwise I'm sure the schools would have nothing to do with it.
  • Bring the kids! See the animal up close in the outdoor areas. Nice easy walking for young, old, and wheelchair accessible
  • They rescue injured and orphaned animals! It was a bit of a hike from Orland Park, but at least I got the good karma of saving 2 orphaned baby birds.
  • I really like it the workers are awesome!
  • Mostly owls, all are rescue animals. Great place to take young children. $1 suggested donation box at the entrance.
