An Experience to Remember

The World Bird Sanctuary rests peacefully on 305 acres of Missouri hardwood forest, next door to Lone Elk County Park and Chubb Trail. We are open daily from 8am - 5pm, and closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Free entry and parking.

The World Bird Sanctuary features free seasonal shows, nature trails, educational programs and picnic pavilions. Come see our
live displays of Bald Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Vultures, Parrots, Reptiles and much more!

Our Mission

Our mission is to preserve the earth′s biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill this mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation.

Falcon Cam 2015

Our Falcon family has set flight. The live camera stream was viewed more than 80,000 times and peaked at nearly 2,000 views per day in early April and May when the eggs were laid and the chicks hatched. Thank you for your interest in the lives of these amazing birds. See you next Spring! See the 2015 Highlights
