Visit the Wildlife Center

Important Update: Due to the close proximity of confirmed Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI), we are taking extra precaution to protect our non-releasable ambassadors. This includes foot bath sanitization stations for guests upon entry to our nature center. Several of our birds are temporarily unable to come out for Wild Encounters. However, we are monitoring Oregon’s HPAI cases and will update our website as we receive further information.
