The Wildlife Discovery Center is a living museum and biological station at historic Elawa Farm, situated alongside the Middlefork Savanna, a 670-acre wildlife habitat in Lake Forest.
The WDC is home to approximately 85 species of animals. During regular visiting hours, you can talk with our animal keepers and meet some of our amazing animals. Our exhibits and programs provide an experience that will kindle a lifetime bond with nature. At the WDC, there is something for everyone!
· Outdoor exhibits and an outdoor interpretive trail. Indoor exhibits are currently closed.
· College student internships and graduate-level research opportunities
· Classes and summer camps for children ages 4 - 15.
· Caretaker talks and feeding demonstrations and well as off-site talks and exhibits
Your generous support will help us upgrade our animal exhibits, continue to provide high-quality care and enrichment for all of our animals, and support the conservation work at the WDC. Several capital improvements have been made possible through the support of generous donors, including the soon to be completed extension to our Bobcat enclosure, and the predator-proof roof on our outdoor turtle pond. Your gifts are fully tax deductible.
Thank you for your support!
