We visited this facility with our adult son and his wife. We are all nature lovers and we all volunteer at one kind of activity or another back home, but we were all impressed by both the volunteers who worked in the gift shop or manned the hotline and by the paid staffers who cared for the animals. This facility... More

we stopped to let the grand kids see the work that the clinic does. Their message to get people to treat animals better is a good one. They have a good record for healing many animals. Not a lot on exhibit other than a few pictures and files, so the kids got bored easily.

Thank you for bringing your grandchildren to CROW. Education is a core element of our mission, especially when it comes to future generations. We feature one of our Animal Ambassadors at our 11 a.m. presentation so when the grandchildren visit again make sure the come during that time to meet some animals. Thank you, CROW More

Anyone who is interested in animal rescue and rehabilitation should definitely make a trip here. I was lucky enough to first visit CROW on opening day so we were able to tour the hospital facilities, which are now closed to the public due to sick and recovering wildlife. There is an informative program and talk plus interactive exhibits for the... More

they had a lot on hands on interactive displays. There are live feeds of several areas that you would normally not see. very interesting to learn of the great work they are doing. A great opportunity to see the good that man is doing for the creatures we have harmed thru pour carelessness.

We thought we would see the actual treatment rooms but we did see live feed of rehabilitating critters. It was very interesting. They present a video of their activities and displays to view as well as the live feed. Very nice gift shop. Worth the trip.

We made our first visit to CROW this year. It is not a good place to visit with small children as the recovering animals need peace and quiet. For adults with an interest in preserving wildlife this was an extraordinary experience. We learned so much in our visit. I no longer consider the possum on my property a nuisance thanks... More

We enjoyed visiting CROW; the visitors center is nice, but the real gem was the talk and tour with Rachel; the state of the art animal hospital was very interesting to tour; we saw an osprey getting xrayed and it was feeding time for the baby racoons and possums ( they had 75 at the time!) = also got to...
