Its all about nature at the the West Virginia State Wildlife Center
The West Virginia State Wildlife Center is in fact a modern zoological facility that can teach families and kids all about native wildlife, as well as introduced state wildlife. After all, there are so many beautiful creatures within the state, they deserve their own center!
The enclosures within the wildlife center allow the animals to interact with their own environment, giving them a more comfortable living space. This also means they exhibit more natural behavior patterns, so kids can learn all about their habits and habitats.
Take a stroll through through the 1.25 mile interpretive trail through a beautiful mature hardwood forest. Along the way, you’ll see interpretive signs that will help you lean all about the animal’s history, life, biology, and also relationship with humans.
