We are open and accessible!! Due to the grandiose construction project at Routes 141 and 44 there is a detour to reach us.

All traffic is being detoured to the new entrance to Meramec Street on the Valley Park exit ramp from 44 West / North Highway Drive.
As you can see, you can directly access this entryway from 44 West (exit Valley Park), from North Highway Drive, or by traveling on the outer road on the opposite side of Highway 44 (South Highway Drive), turning left on the Maritz overpass and then left again on North Highway Drive.

Wildlife Hospital Donation Drive 2017

It’s almost springtime, which means it’s nearing the busiest season of the year for our Wildlife Hospital here at World Bird Sanctuary. Along with the usual population of injured birds we receive month-to-month, we also receive many baby birds during the spring months. We will be inundated with patients soon, and we will need extra funds to help pay for their care! Please consider donating to help those birds that will be coming in with a variety of different needs and injuries.

Be a part of something big, and help return these beautiful creatures back to the wild where they belong!
