My friend and I loved learning about all the beautiful birds as owls are my favorite but were a bit bummed that the buildings closed at two. Look forward to checking it out again at an earlier time of the day.

Wonder raptor exhibits with knowledgeable staff and excellent age based programs. There camps are educational and interactive. The kids are learning and come home exhausted after great day. I would give this place 10 stars if I could!
