About Us

  • How is the Northwoods Wildlife Center funded?

    Northwoods Wildlife Center is a nonprofit organization that relies on the generous support of local individuals, families, businesses, and foundations who contribute in the form of memberships, private donations, grants, fundraising events, and foundation support. NWC does not receive state or federal funding for our services.

  • Can I walk around the grounds on my own?

    We offer public tours by reservation only. A tour guide will provide organization history, and detailed animal and species information throughout the tour.

  • Where do your animals come from?

    Our goal is to rescue, rehabilitate and release wildlife patients. We provide care for animals that are in need, whether they are orphaned, injured or displaced. The majority of our patients come from Oneida, Vilas, and Price county, however we often are able to receive animals from the northern third of Wisconsin.
