Willowbrook Nature Center in Glen Ellyn, IL serves both as a wild animal rehabilitation center and an educational center. So, Willowbrook Nature Center is the perfect place to contact and bring an injured animal should you discover one. Today, we visited Willowbrook to learn a little more.

If you encounter an injured native animal, you may drop off the injured animal during drop off hours. Depending on type of animal and size, I recommend contacting the nature center to learn how best to bring the animal in or if you will need assistance from someone more experienced. For example, adult raptors can cause injury so you will want to contact the nature center for more direction. You can call the nature center daily 9AM-4:30PM at 630-942-6200. Please check the nature center website for information on off hours care. Thank you to Willowbrook Nature Center for all you do for wildlife!
