The Fox Valley Wildlife Center is a private, not-for-profit organization that cares for orphaned and injured wildlife. The FVWC is state and federally licensed, and is the only rehabilitation center in Kane County. We provide hospital care for wild animals who need help and have been impacted by man in some way. Our goal is to release these animals back into the wild because they deserve a second chance.

Education Programs
Fox Valley Wildlife Center Education Program is a great choice for schools and a wide variety of clubs and civic groups to learn more about wildlife around us and to discover ways to help.We will tell your group about some of the animals found in this area, how wild animals interact with the environment, how to judge if an animal actually needs help, and ways to provide help.

Our programs can be enjoyed outdoors or indoors, and are offered by a licensed wildlife rehabilitator. Programs are variable in length based on your requirements and the time available, and could include a slide show, a visit from our educational animals, other children’s activities, etc. Contact the Center for details and fees (charges depend on services offered, but you’ll know that the funds will be used for the Center’s many needs!).

Please give us a call at 630-365-3800 to arrange a program for your school or club!
