Great place to educate your kids as well as yourself. This is a rescue operation for birds in the area usually damaged by our human presence in their environment. This place does a great job caring for these animals and need our help.

This is a wonderful center that helps rescue birds. I had no idea that there were so many different species of birds in this area. My favorite were the white pelicans, much larger than I expected to see. They also have owls and vultures. No...More

We stumbled upon this bird sanctuary by accident. We really enjoyed walking thru. It was feeding time and that was cool. It is a small place but really interesting. From what I understand they are funded 100% by donations. Definitely worth checking out.

This is such a wonderful place. It's home to many of the local disabled birds who would otherwise be unable to survive in the wild. It is free to get in.... they just ask for donations. Everyone are volunteers and do a truly incredible job....More

Would be a bit of a long walk. Take the trolley that runs all day long, or nice long walk on the beach. Easy access from the beach. Well worth the visit!
