#232: World Bird Sanctuary

Name pretty much says it all. It is a collection and preservance of birds of all kinds.
  • The World Bird Sanctuary sits on 305 acres.
  • Several endangered bird and wildlife species are featured here including eagles, owls, reptiles, parrots, the list goes on
  • Despite its name, it is one of many bird sanctuaries, yet one of the largest, in the United States.
  • Founded in 1977 by former St. Louis Zoo employee, ornithologist Walter C. Crawford, Jr.
  • Special programs including scout badge programs and bird-watching tours can be scheduled with a naturalist, for a fee.
  • Every Thursday evening in August there is a concert in the ampitheater part, which not only has a live band performing but features special birds flying out to the audience!
