Watch the eagles take flight, touch our lime-green friend, Monty the Python, or explore the different habitats of raptors, reptiles and mammals at the Center for Wildlife Education and the Lamar Q Ball Jr. Raptor Center. With more than 5 acres featuring diverse habitats and species, an amphitheater, and an indoor classroom, get ready to take a walk on the wild side!
The center features a 12-acre wetland preserve that includes a small pond and capture basin that houses a beaver lodge, a cypress pond and a waterfowl pond. Resident species of birds of prey include eagles, hawks, owls, falcons, kestrels and vultures. Reptiles and amphibians also on display.
