SUISUN WILDLIFE CENTER
The Suisun Wildlife Center is a non-profit volunteer organization, dedicated to the rescue of native wildlife and to the preservation of the Suisun Marsh through environmental education programs.
The center, located in Suisun City next to the Suisun Marsh, is a true safe haven for our region’s wildlife. Every year, the Suisun Valley Wildlife Center cares for over 1,000 birds and other wild animals. The center has an animal hospital set up in the back of the main building, where trained volunteers devote countless hours to rehabilitating them for release back into the wild. Although the animal hospital is closed to the public, guests are welcome to stop by, see the visitor’s center in the front office and walk around and see the permanent residents who call the center home.
The goal at the Suisun Wildlife Center is to re-release as many animals as possible. But if injuries or health issues prevent that from happening, the animal could then become a permanent resident at the facility, where they not only receive care from the trained volunteer handlers, but also educate families, youth groups, schools, service clubs and other visitors. Current residents include a coyote, raccoon, a golden eagle, hawks and several owls. The Suisun Wildlife Center offers a wide variety of presentations and field trips that are a favorite for small and large groups alike and their Suisun Marsh EnvironmentalProgram is part of the annual curriculum in the local school districts.
The Suisun Wildlife Center is open daily, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the winter and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in summer months.
