Before injured and abandoned animals are returned to the wild, many stay at Willowbrook. Some animals live at the center year-round, including a bald eagle, golden eagle, turkey vultures and red foxes. An interpretive hiking trail winds through 40 acres of restored habitats. Puzzles, games and puppets offer indoor educational opportunities.
