MARS WILDLIFE RESCUE Visitors Centre
Please join us to view exhibits which will give you an interesting look into our various animal patients. Touch bones and feathers or test your knowledge of bird calls. A special children’s area invites exploration of our animal-rescue themes. Learn how we can ALL help wildlife and reduce our impact on wild places.
Make sure to take a look at our new Gift Shop full of unique, locally made items that will please every member of the family, young and old. There are many great gift ideas perfectly suited to that special person.
For now admission will be by donation. All proceeds go to the care and maintenance of our wildlife patients.
***Please note our winter hours: beginning October 15th we are open from Thursday to Sunday 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. When bird handlers are available we will have an ambassador out to greet you between noon and 2 p.m. on open days.
Guided tours and group visits are available for 10 or more people on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Click here to book a visit for your group or call (778) 428-1990.
Wear sturdy footwear if you would like to visit the outdoor homes (MEWS) of our ambassador birds. Trails are being built but we are still a work in progress and we appreciate your patience while we “grow” forward.
PLEASE NOTE: NO DOGS ARE ALLOWED ON THE PROPERTY.
