This was a very nice, small wildlife exhibit. The grounds were very easy to navigate. It seemed to keep the children's interest. And there was no gift shop to walk through when it was time to leave!

This wildlife center takes an hour or so to see and is very well done. There is an emphasis on conservation and the environment.

Great place to see Animals without having to go to the zoo. Not too big so your kids won't get tired of walking. We love the bear, elk, and buffalo.
