Nature Center Visits



The Center for Wildlife is a place for people of all ages to learn and explore the concepts of empathy, biology, ecology, and the human/wildlife connection through interpretation, direct experiences with nature, and experiential exhibits. 

Our Nature Center and Outdoor Ambassador Enclosures are open for self-guided visits as well as private tours! Our public visits are the perfect opportunity to explore our Nature Center and visit with our ambassador animals at their outdoor enclosures. 

Nature Center Visits are $10 per person. Please keep in mind, our Outdoor Ambassador Enclosures are outside and open to the elements. Please dress accordingly. Drop-ins are now welcome while tickets are available. Reservations are recommended.
