    Wonderful place! Great for families to see native animals (owls, bald eagle, raccoons,etc.) and the walking trail is gorgeous. They also care for sick/injured/orphaned wildlife behind the scenes and rerelease them back into the wild

    I have been here any of times, & today I have to say I was very disappointed with the way one of the staff talked to our group. We were there on a field trip with special ed students who were have a good time looking at the animals. It's a outside place so kids should noy have to be totally quite. The staff member rudely yelled at the us to keep to keep our students quite so the the public people could hear him. Are we not public people!!! That was totally uncalled for.

    They usually kill most animals to cut medical cost. Don't take injured wild animals there unless it's a VERY minor injury.

    Super sweet staff who were very informative and caring for an orphaned fox squirrel in our landscape construction project. Call their hotline for great info about how to care for overnight and transport orphaned animals to their facility.
