Lots of educational programs and different animals displayed up close and personal through out the day. Great way to get the kids used to a small "museum" setting before attempting anything larger. They also have a wildlife hospital and take in injured native animals. Always...More

I used to be a big supporter of this organization... until they screwed me over at their fund raising auction. I had bid the "buy it now" price on several wines. After the auction terminated the auctioneer went around and got people to outbid me!...More

This museum is small, but their exhibits are great and the speakers are very knowledgeable. They are great with kids and patiently answer all questions. They help save all sick and injured animals from the local areas.

They are small enough that they don't pre-sell admissions. You would have to fund them through traditional methods!!! But I love your interest in Lindsay and I have to tell you I volunteer there as a docent and love it... More

There is a turkey vulture outside at the very front, but everything else is inside. It would be a wonderful place to spend a rainy day!
