Please contact with inquiries about groups larger than 10 people.

Bird Lover's Morning

$120 (includes up to 5 people)

Spend the morning venturing into the world of caring for birds and what it means to communicate with them. Join our Bird Curator in the daily training sessions of both Cormie and Nelle - see what they share in common, and what makes them unique. Each day is different, genuinely adapted to these individuals and their current needs, which means each day is a one-of-a-kind experience.

Bird Lover’s Morning also includes a guided tour of our Wildlife Center. The entire experience typically runs 90-120 minutes, depending upon the interests of our guests.

Cormie Encounter

$90 (includes up to 5 people)

Get up close and personal with Cormie, our charismatic resident double-crested cormorant. Join her in a training session to see how she learns and participates in her own care.  You’ll spend one-on-one time with her and her trainer, see her intelligence firsthand, and if you’re lucky, catch a glimpse of that beautiful blue mouth!  

Cormie Encounter also includes a guided tour of our Wildlife Center.  The entire experience typically runs 60-90 minutes, dependent upon the interests of our guests.

Private Guided Tour

$40 (includes up to 5 people)

Enjoy a private guided tour of our Wildlife Center, and get a behind the scenes look at the work that goes on in our clinic to rehabilitate wildlife. You’ll also tour the outdoor enclosures, and get to meet our education ambassadors. Tours typically run 45-60 minutes.
