Online Wildlife Book Club

Every other month, the Center hosts an online book club on the Critter Cam's moderated discussion.  Join us on June 2 when we discuss our next book, "Plastic Ocean" by Capt. Charles Moore.

The Return of Cub Cam

The Center is currently caring for six Black Bear cubs ... and they're on Critter Cam!

Need Wildlife Assistance?

Do you know what to do if you find a young wild animal?  Many times, rescuers think an animal is orphaned, when the young bird or mammal is still receiving care from an unseen parent. Sometimes these animals don't need any "help" from us at all!

Bald Eagle Tracking

The Wildlife Center is currently tracking the post-release movements of four Bald Eagles.  See where the eagles are now!
