“Nice place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 3, 2012

This was a great place to walk and take a look at some animals and very nice habitat. The gift shop was very nice. Great friendly people and was well layed out. Hope they raise the money to get the bear back in its habitat.

“A Day Well Spent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2012

The kids will LOVE this. They will love to see the amazing plants and animals, while learning something too. Check the website to see what is going on. There's almost always some sort of festival going on (Sheep to Shawl, TrickOrTreating, Cane Grinding Festival, etc.)

“Sometimes great things come in small packages”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2012

I thought this wildlife center was set up quite well. All of the animals had very large habitats to roam around and most all of them had shade, climbing trees, and water. I do not like going to zoos where the animals aren't even in proper habitats but the wildlife center was very nice.
