This is a nice quiet little sanctuary and I think it's that way because not many know about it...outside are the woods, a bird observatory, a pond, two screech owls and a friendly turkey vulture in wire enclosures. Inside are several rooms with all manner of reptiles, snakes, bugs, a blind possum, a rabbit, domestic rats, a chinchilla, a bearded dragon, and a turtle dove. They also have some children's books and a little table for little ones to have quiet time. The volunteers are always welcoming and they have a box for voluntary donations. The birds you can see here are turtle doves, cardinals, blue jays, yellow finches and sparrows. You see them from inside a wooden building out a window and they are a delight to the eyes! Plus in their ponds they have fish, frogs and turtles. Bring lunch and a book! Bring your kids! What a wonderful way to enjoy Our Creator's creations!

I love coming here! It's a fun, family friendly place and seeing all the wildlife never ceases to bring me out of a bad mood.
