  • Always a great place to take the kids. Although at the age of 4 my girls still have an issue completely seeing some of the exhibits, they have to step on their tippy toes or be picked up. The exhibits consist of the surrounding wildlife life birds, reptile and rodents. I particularly enjoy the see though behive, they have a bird flying simulator and a live informational exhibition telling about the different animals they take care of. There are many volunteers around to explain to you about the many animals in detail. And after you can take your kids to the park only steps aways.
  • One of my favorite places on the planet. One of the only emergency surgical rooms in the country, Lindsay Wildlife actively takes in wild animals and nurse them back to health. They offer classes for homeschooling kids in the classrooms down stairs. They also have volunteer opportunity's for kids starting at age 12.
  • So well done. The raptor exhibit was amazing - they're live in the open, right there. It's not overwhelming in size. My toddler likes it. Great park and playground next door. I became a member.
  • Super nice staff I brought a baby opossum there that's mother was killed by a car. Baby was in good shape and they are going to raise and care for the Lil guy♡ ty ty ty Lindsay wildlife♡
  • It's a great place to take the kids. They have lots of different birds and a few smaller animals.
