Include a Tour at the Wildlife Center in your next Party!

     Your child can now include a visit to Wildlife Center in their next birthday or other type party! We offer two different types of visits to SPWRC to accommodate different size groups. Each visit includes a tour of the rehabilitation facility, and party guests will learn about native animals that come to the Center for care before returning them to the wild. Guests will also see live wild animals and learn the stories of our Wildlife Ambassadors that live permanently at the Center because they can't be released.

     Two different packages are available and encompass different size groups and  levels of activities. 

NOTE: These are NOT replacing educational programs for schools, youth groups, etc. Please contact Gail Barnes at 799-2142 if you want to schedule an Educational Program.
