“Interesting and close up with nature”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

We visit the Wildlife Center often to watch and photograph the birds in and out of captivity. The work of the volunteers is outstanding and commited to care for and be experts on each bird there. If you go, remember they need vegetables and feed for the animals which on their website is listed. This is FREE and donations are gently asked for/ A MUST while in town.

“Nice Wildlife refuge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

Love going to Ponce De Leon Park for the afternoon or for sunsets. Nice and clean and nice view of Peace River. Best part of this place is the wildlife refuge where they take care of injured birds such as eagles,ibis, owls,hawks, pelicans,etc. Well managed and very educational.

“Good work being done here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

Great talking to the staff here for "behind-the-scenes" info on how these birds arrived here. The story of the talking crow was amazing. Kudos to this place for the work they do. It's small but interesting and worth a donation to help them out.

“So glad we stopped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2014

We were on our way to Bonita Springs, a few people told me about this park, so we decied to stop in. Well worth the trip. Not only is it a beautiful park, but they have a bird rehab center that was a wonderful thing to see. The "volunteer" staff were so helpful and informative, they all had such passion for what they do. It's a don't miss stop, and bring your lunch, because the park is peacefull and relaxing.
