  • This is a must do in Punta Gorda. If you need to find an activity for your house guests, bring them to 'Poncie' Park and set them loose. If your timing is right, a naturalist will have an owl or rapto...  more »
  • Went to PRWC with my 3 year old son. He had a blast seeing all the beautiful birds (bald eagles, pelicans, herons, vultures, etc) and he got to meet Luna the screech owl and Blossom the opossum. The v...  more »

  • I have been to this place many times. Every time I go I learned a bit more about these beautiful birds. My mom has given donations of different food products and cleaning products they will always accept them. Just give them a little call and they have a sheet of paper that tells you what things they can accept for donations . They even have a gift shop on premises the shirts are very reasonably priced I recommend visiting it. They also do educational things with the owl Luna. They live on donations so if you visit feel generous to give them a little bit of money.
  • This place is AMAZING. Free admission, free parking. I researched before going and found a donation list so we donated things in lieu of admission. We will definitely be making another family trip here!!!
  • It was an enjoyable place to visit with small kids; who enjoyed seeing all the wildlife up close. Our family walked through in an hour. So a quick visit - but enjoyable.
  • Excellent place! The staff is helpful and knowledgeable. What They are doing to help injured birds and wildlife is amazing
  • A small haven for injured birds that can no longer survive in the wild. Bald eagles, owls, pelicans, hawks and many more species. Entry is free, donations are suggested and vital to keep this place running. Right on a lovely beach so a good place for an outing in Punta Gorda.
