As an education center, it serves as a resource for county residents who wish to learn how to live in harmony with local wildlife. The 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.

Several native animals with permanent disabilities live in enclosures along the center’s outdoor exhibit trail. Residents include bald and golden eagles, red-tailed hawks, turkey vultures, owls, red foxes, groundhogs, raccoons and opossums.
