Wildlife Discovery Center Animals at the Beach OUR AWARD-WINNING NATURE CENTER IS COMING TO THE BEACH! The WDC will be bringing its amazing creatures to Forest Park Beach all summer long! Our professional staff and college interns will visit the beach playground area on a weekly basis with an entourage of fascinating animals in tow. Check out the schedule below for times and locations, weather permitting. SCHEDULE OF VISITS • MON, JUNE 24 - THU, AUGUST 1 MONDAYS & THURSDAYS Beach (playground area) 10:00 am - 12:00 pm Helping Wildlife HELPING INJURED OR ORPHANED WILDLIFE If you have found a seemingly orphaned animal, or an injured animal that is not in imminent danger, before taking any action, contact The Illinois Department of Natural Resources Northeastern Office at 847.608.3100. Many young animals might seem orphaned when the parent is merely nearby, but out of sight. If it is necessary to rescue an injured animal, do not attempt to give it food or water without first obtaining guidance from the IDNR or other qualified expert. Adult VIP ADULT VIP BEHIND-THE-SCENES EXPERIENCE The Wildlife Discovery Center can provide a unique experience for you and your friends: a VIP tour of the facility. This is an opportunity to get “behind the scenes” and interact with some of our most interesting animals. Whether you wish to make arrangements for an intimate group, or incorporate the experience into part of a celebration or special event, we can work with you to make it happen. Enhance a reception or cocktail hour with interactive tours of the exhibits with trained staff. Pricing is based on the number of staff members needed to provide support for this 90-minute experience. Please contact Rob Carmichael, Curator, to customize your ideal VIP Behind-the-Scenes Experience at 847.810.3663. Thank You!
