Worth the trip to Ponce de Leon Park home of the Peace River Wildlife Center. Families,couples and friends will all find the wildlife very interesting and educational. They have a nice gift shop. There is no cost but donations are welcome.
My wife and I have been here several times and usually take visitors here as well. Very nice display of birds that have been injured and are being rehabilitated. Everything from Bald Eagles to an albino owl. I have taken some very nice photos here and for a price you can take photos inside the cages; up & personal. Staff... 更多
This is the best place to see local wildlife in the area. Mainly they take in sick and injured wildlife and if they can, return them to the locale in which they were found. For those that can no longer survive in the wild due to their injury, this becomes their home. PRWC is open every day of the year... 更多
Awesome experience for the whole family. Really gets down to seeing the many species of wildlife in the area. They do great work caring for injured birds. Your up close and personal.
Take an hour out and learn something new. This is our 2nd visit here and still thouroughly enjoyed seeing what animals they were helping. The volunteers here do a great job and are happy to explain what the animals are and how they are helping them.
Educational lecture about pelicans. Not for real young children, school kids OK. Kinda small can get a little crowded. Nice place for a short stop off. Has a gift shop. Nice workers.
These is a wonderful place to take children & out of town visitors to show them the local flora & fauna. The Wildlife Center is interesting to tour with a small gift shop attached. It is adjacent to a waterfront park with picnic facilities, a boardwalk through the mangroves & spectacular sunsets overlooking Charlotte Harbor.
Nothing wrong with birds, but I anticipated more water animals. Not a large place...15 minutes is all you need to see everything, even with a tour. Their mission is admirable though...glad that birds who could not survive in the wild have a place to go and someone to care for them.
