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 ourlive displays of Bald Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Vultures, Parrots, Reptiles and much more!

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.
