If you like to hike through the Maine woods and see wildlife running about you are like most of us.  However, we all know that outside of the occasional chipmunk or red squirrel most of the time you leave the woods having seen a lot of trees and not many animals.  That is why a trip to the Maine Wildlife Park is so satisfying.

The Park serves as a permanent home for wildlife that cannot be returned to their natural habitats. Over 30 different kinds of Maine animals are here for their protection, and for you to learn about and enjoy.

Some of the residents include:

  • Black Bear
  • Bobcat
  • Cougar
  • Beaver
  • Canadian Lynx
  • Moose
  • Several types of owls
  • Foxes
  • Eagles
  • Raccoons
  • Porcupines
  • Deer
  • Woodchucks and more

In addition to the many animals for you to see the park also offers many other attractions. Once there you and the family can enjoy trails& gardens, education programs& guided tours, picnic area & wardens museum, fish hatchery, nature store and a bunch more to keep you busy.

Ticket prices are reasonable, click here for hours, ticket prices and options. Just remember when you go the only thing you're allowed to shoot with is a camera.
