Baby season is here and we have tons of wildlife babies coming in to our center to care for and rehabilitate to return back to the wild! This special event is the ONLY time you are able see these amazing wildlife babies up close and in person.

This year, our event will be held at the Broadrun section of the Parklands.

COST: $6 per person to attend the Wildlife Baby Shower (2+ years). Tickets can be purchased in advance through Eventbrite or at the door. Also, bring some extra dollars with you for the kids to play games and activities that we will have. All ages welcome, but children must be accompanied at all times by an adult.
