Brukner Nature Center is a private, non-profit nature preserve dedicated to environmental education and wildlife rehabilitation.

Those that cannot be released back into the wild will find permanent homes at the center and become “Wildlife Ambassadors.” See the live wildlife exhibits and learn about these animals from a staff naturalist while inside the interactive environmental education center.
