and The Lamar Q Ball, Jr. Raptor Center

Welcome to the Wildlife Center

Weekly Schedule:

The Center for Wildlife Education is currently closed on Saturdays through the summer.  We will reopen on Saturday, September 6, 2014 at 1:00 PM. 


Afternoon Program at 3:30 PM

Visit the Wildlife Center for an exciting and educational 30 minute wildlife program each afternoon, Monday through Friday at 3:30 PM.   Experience and learn about wildlife with our staff as they bring out a variety of reptiles, amphibians, mammals and birds of prey.  Animals will change regularly so visit often.


Nature Tails

Introduce your preschooler to nature and wildlife at the Center for Wildlife Education before school starts.  Each Tuesday in June and July at 10:30 AM we will read an exciting book about wildlife.  Afterwards we’ll bring out some of the animals mentioned in the book, or related to the story for an up-close encounter.  Each program will end with a fun hands-on activity or craft.  The dates and titles of the chosen stories will be listed soon.  These programs are designed for children ages 3-4 years old.  Please click HERE for a description of each book being read.
