Lindsay Wildlife Museum connects people with wildlife to inspire responsibility and respect for the world we share. The museum exhibits a collection of live, native California animals, a hands-on discovery room for children, a pet education section with domestic animals, changing exhibits, scores of educational programs, and a wildlife rehabilitation hospital that treats about 6,000 animals every year."

Ava and I are big fans of the museum. Please remember Lindsay Wildlife Museum is also an animal hospital; they treat native injured animals at no cost to the public. If you ever find an injured mourning dove, a baby squirrel, or another native creature...they are THE place to bring it for care.
