My family including grandchildren took the guided tour here. The gal that showed us around was amazing. Her passion for these owls were evident throughout the tour. We all learned so much!

The owls are all kept in large enclosures outside. The staff was very willing to show us around and talk about the owls. It's not a large exhibit. Admission is whatever you would like to donate.

Neat place to stop. It's free and ran completely on donations. You can't hold owls which is sad yet not surprising as they are wild animals

Hmmm. Cannot remember - it is on the outskirts of town - closes in the winter, I remember but having said that the woman that runs it will be there every morning to feed the owls. Sorry I couldn't have been more help

The best time to get a chance at viewing the owls at Grasslands National Park would be when the young owls begin emerging from their nest burrow which is typically the second to third week in July.
