What a great place doing great work! Got to meet two owlets only 3 weeks old! And Marshmallow the gopher! We even adopted an owl! Thank you!
This small centre was a great visit where we saw two kinds of owls in captivity. The staff took us on a tour and told us about the owls, their habitat and the work they are doing to help the population grow again. Well worth the visit.
Well worth a visit--- you will not be disappointed. We had a junior staff member take us on the tour --- she was excellent. Knew her facts about the owls, their habits, behavior etc. We arrived on a cool day and all the owls were out, we got some excellent pictures. As the owls are becoming extinct --- what a... More
