“Not sure worth the time”
Reviewed 25 August 2014

Very small facility. We took the tour which lasted just under 25 minutes. Very average. There is simply not that much to do. Everyone was very friendly. Note that google maps might bring you to the other side of the street, between Trigs and Walmart. Just turn around and you will see the facility on the other side of the street.

“Neat experience, very educational”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

My kids loved seeing Wisconsin wildlife that had been rescued from injury. Seeing the replica of an eagle's nest really wowed them, impressed at the size of it. They even have a little coloring area with coloring sheets!

“They do great work”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

Very informative and great to see animals from the area. Sad to know that many will be hunted after being set free due to Wisconsin lack of conservation. Only animals under federal protection will have a chance. They do not help predators like coyote, wolf or bear.

“Refuge for Wild Animals”
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”
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.
