“Refuge for Wild Animals”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2014

This is a really wonderful organization. They save wild animals like, eagles, owls, birds, bears, etc that have been hurt by either humans or in the wild. They present educational information to groups in their building or go to organizations and schools to teach about the animals in the outdoors. This organization is essential to our area. Donations to them helps preserve the way of life of endangered wildlife.

“Great work with injured and needy animals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 September 2013

This facility is a rehabilitation hospital and educational center. Animals that can be reintroduced to the wild are, and those with issues that would make it unsafe to do so are well cared for. Guided tours with a small voluntary donation are provided. There is a small gift shop as well.

“Great place to visi and support.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2013

We brought my grand daughter here last month; very informative tour given by an intern. I had been here before, but did not realize how many (mainly) raptors/owls are housed on the grounds. The indoor displays are good as well. They do good work; please support this facility!

“Fun for children and adults”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Set in a relaxing, park-like setting, this is far more than a simple petting zoo for kids though there is that too. We were pleasantly surprised at the number of animals here. We particularly liked their collection of exotic peacocks from all over the world. There were stunningly beautiful species that I have never seen even in big city zoos. The most fun though was walking around in their giant birdcage with hundreds of friendly parakeets. Make sure you get one of the sticks with food on them and be prepared to have these little guys land on your fingers, shoulders and even head.

“Nice educational tour for families”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2012 via mobile

This center does a great thing in caring for animals and educating public. Nice little center to explore before tour. Tours are every 1/2 hr and are actually outside behind center on a pebbled path that goes between buildings that house all kinds of birds that have been injured and can't be released back to wild. Guide was very informative about all the birds and really knew her stuff. Really liked it and it's free but you'll want to donate. Were some things different than expected. First of all GPS takes wrong direction. Thought tour would be inside but was outside. Didn't realize tour was only birds. Overall really good but not what expected.
