July 2, 2022 Update: 

Our Visitor Centre is open!

As Avian Influenza wanes, we have modified our tours to include visits to our eagle recovery flight pen. Watch these beautiful raptors stretch their wings as they prepare for release back into the wild!

Our commitment to the safety and well-being of our resident ambassador birds (eagles, owls, and crows) and wildlife patients is our first priority. We will be monitoring and adapting our tours as the situation evolves so please stay tuned for updates.

**Because we’re still limiting foot traffic near our resident birds at this time, guests won’t be able to visit our ambassador birds, or meet an ambassador bird and handler. However, we’d love to greet you and show you our wild side! There’s a lot to see and experience at our Visitor Centre. **

Come for a visit Friday, Saturday, Sunday 10 to 3. If you wish a tour, please book your spot here.
