About this event

**We are still protecting our patients and resident birds from Avian Influenza by reducing foot traffic near them. Avian Flu is gradually receding so we are able to visit recovering Bald Eagles in the Flight Pen and an ambassador bird and handler will be able to greet you at the Visitor Centre. We will not be able to tour past the other ambassador birds in their enclosures. Tours are modified (but they are still really fun!). In order to ensure safety to our recovering eagles and our ambassador birds, we kindly ask tour guests to use the provided Prevail spray on the soles of their shoes before visiting before we approach the birds.**

Come for an exciting, pre-booked tour of MARS for you, your small group, or your family. Learn about our animal patients and the skilled, compassionate care they receive at our hospital. View recovering Bald Eagles in their impressive two-story flight pen. Visit our non-releasable ambassador owls, eagles, and albino crows, and meet one of our birds up-close with a handler. Our comfortable trails pass through gardens and wilder spaces with native plants. Let our friendly guides give you a visit to remember, then wrap up your experience with a visit to our gift shop and indoor wildlife exhibits area to learn more. Plan for about a one and half hour visit.

Admission by donation at the MARS gift shop by cash, credit, or debit; all donations support our wildlife hospital. Tax receipts available for donations of $20.00 or more.

What to bring: Please check our website for latest Covid protocols. Dress for the weather and for outdoor walking on trails; bring a snack for the picnic tables. Sorry, no dogs on site, please, as they cause stress for patients.
