My wife and I heard abut this place for years. One day my wife and I found an injured bird in our yard and took it there. We made a small donation for the care of the bird.

Watching the bears on camera always makes me smile. The staff works tirelessly to provide the best care to patients and to educate the community. We had several rehabbed raptors released on our property. Thank you for answering every call!

We were there last month. We were told that the center is not open to visitation. They take in injured and sick wildlife that is brought to them, but do not offer tours.
