Open House

Join us for our annual Open House! In 2020, it will be Sunday, October 4 from 1-4 pm. This is a free family-friendly event.  Meet our non-releasable “ambassador” animals. Hawks, owls, and falcons will be presented “on the glove” by handlers for the public to view up close and personal. Children’s crafts, tours of the admissions facilities, educational displays and refreshments are other highlights. There will be a raffle, and clothing, wildlife photos, and center memberships will be available for purchase. The center’s licensed rehabilitators, educators and volunteers will be onsite to answer questions and discuss exciting successes of the past year.


View photos and videos of recent patients via our facebook page.

Onsite Programs

Schedule a personal program! Onsite 1-hour live animal programs can be arranged for groups up to 35 people. See our education page for more information or call the center at 814-763-2574. Click here to learn more about our programs.


Currently, we have limited availability to provide onsite tours of our facilities. These are available only when staffing and patient caseload permit and have a suggested donation of $5/person. Please call 814-763-2574 to inquire about availability and scheduling. Note, no wildlife patients can be viewed during a tour. This is necessary in order to minimize stress to our patients and keep them wild, in preparation for their release.
