“A closer view on native wildlife”
Willowbrook Wildlife Center is a native wildlife rehabilitation facility that provides care and medical treatment for injured and orphaned wild animals. As an education center, it serves as a resource for county residents who wish to learn how to live in harmony with local wildlife. Throughout the year, Willowbrook Wildlife Center offers individuals, families and groups a variety of fun, educational programs that focus on insects, birds of prey, mammals and natural history. During the summer, children can enjoy one of the center’s two camps. At "Wildlife Explorers" children ages 6 – 8 learn about the environment and how they are part of nature through games, activities and stories. At “Wild By Nature" children ages 9 – 12 discover the natural history of DuPage County through safe exploration and play in wild places. The Willowbrook Visitor Center offers a closer view of native wildlife. Animals with permanent disabilities live in several of the indoor exhibits, and windows provide views of the kitchen and nursery, where staff and volunteers prepare specialized diets and care for baby animals. A classroom and an indoor discovery area offer additional explorations for the center’s younger visitors. The center has modern restrooms, a drinking fountain, general forest preserve and wildlife information, and a gift shop with wildlife-related merchandise.
