An Experience to Remember

The World Bird Sanctuary rests peacefully on 305 acres of Missouri hardwood forest, next door to Lone Elk County Park and Chubb Trail. We are open daily from 8am - 5pm, and closed only on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Free entry and parking.

The World Bird Sanctuary features free seasonal shows, nature trails, educational programs and picnic pavilions. Come see our
live displays of Bald Eagles, Owls, Hawks, Falcons, Vultures, Parrots, Reptiles and much more!

Our Mission

Our mission is to preserve the earth′s biological diversity and to secure the future of threatened bird species in their natural environments. We work to fulfill this mission through education, propagation, field studies and rehabilitation.

Help Protect Our National Symbol

Walter C. Crawford, Jr., World Bird Sanctuary Founder and Executive Director, started the important work of rehabilitating and releasing birds of prey over 35 years ago. Preserving, protecting and helping Bald Eagles has been a core focus of his life's work. In 2010/2011, we followed one eagle's story – a testament to the commitment of Walter and his staff to the mission of World Bird Sanctuary.
