It's Coming Soon!

Fall is just around the corner, and that means OPEN HOUSE will soon be here!  The World Bird Sanctuary Open House weekend will fall on October 17th and 18th this year.

Those of you who have joined us before for this, our biggest event of the year, already know what a fun weekend this can be for adults and children alike.  For those of you who have not attended before, be prepared to have a blast!

As always, admission is FREE!!

Entertainment is free.  There will be shows going on continuously throughout the day -- free flight and natural behaviors demonstrations by our birds, sing-alongs, story-telling, crafts for the kids, etc.

Wear your walking shoes and hike our trails.  See our Eagles, Owls, Hawks, and some of our more exotic species as you walk the trail past our exhibit enclosures.

See our wildlife hospital where we treat over 300 sick and injured birds every year.

Our staff and volunteers will be available to give educational talks and gladly answer questions about the birds.

For a minimal fee there will be food available for purchase, a face painting booth for the kids, a photo op holding a live bird of prey, and many other fun activities.

Mark your calendars now for October 17th and 18th.  Open House hours are 9 am - 4 pm.
