This place is hard to find. Near the superstore by exhibition grounds. They have about 8 owls that u can see. Small interpretive Center with facts about owls. I normally hate winged creatures but this site made me appreciate them. I even adopted an owl as it takes $400 a year to feed one. Staff is friendly. Great place to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed this visit with our grandchildren. The staff was very helpful, and we all learned a great deal about this magnificent creature. We just received our certificate and photo of the owl we adopted. The owl stays there but the money goes to the upkeep of the centre. Thank you

A small but extremely interesting exhibit. Very helpful and informative staff. Entrance is by donation. It is nice to know that efforts are being made to help this threatened Owl. I counted thirteen owls in the enclosure who unfortunately cannot be released to the wild as they have missed a migration cycle. Very informative and recommended. The grandkids were entertained...

Had no idea that Burrowing Owls Migrate 6000km to Texas. If you want to learn about these beautiful birds and much more, this place is worth a visit. We had a little trouble finding the centre, but it's there. Look out for their pet gopher :).

Most of the owls were out and about when we visited, only a few were hiding in the burrows. Really appreciated the art and pictures that goes with the descriptive information provided. Best part was the day by day display picture poster of the Owl from the day it was born until it was full grown. Pro preservation, Thank you... More

This is a small facility that has less than a dozen burrowing owls on display, all in very large confinements, one or two to a cage. A guide took us through the facility and talked to us about the birds. There is no entrance fee, but there is a donation box. There might be an Irish Wolfhound on the grounds... More

This small centre was a great visit where we saw two kinds of owls in captivity. The staff took us on a tour and told us about the owls, their habitat and the work they are doing to help the population grow again. Well worth the visit.
