Sulphur Creek Nature Center

A Wildlife Education and Rehabilitation Center
The mission of the Sulphur Creek Nature Center is to instill a sense of responsibility for the welfare of our world by bringing people and animals closer together through wildlife rehabilitation and education. 

What We Do..

Wildlife Rehabilitation
  The staff and volunteers of Sulphur Creek help to take care of hundreds of native wild animals that are sick, orphaned, or injured.

Wildlife Education

There is a lot more to Sulphur Creek, including Birthday Parties, Special Programs, Volunteer Opportunities and more
