Alabama Wildlife Center

Mostly a volunteer-operated nonprofit organization, is Alabama’s oldest and largest wildlife rehabilitation facility. Provides medical and rehabilitative care for almost 2,000 of Alabama's injured and orphaned native birds from over 100 different species. Open every day of the year, visitors can enjoy: paid or self-guided tours; observation of patients via camera monitors & one-way glass viewing windows; educational programs and tours with the opportunity for up-close experiences with a Barred Owl, American Kestrel, Mississippi Kite and Merlin. Treetop Nature Trail: a 750-foot elevated boardwalk winds through a wooded valley & provides close up views of non-releasable hawks, owls and vultures living in naturally furnished cages. Located in the heart of Oak Mountain State Park, AWC is open every day. Free after paid admission to the park.
