Raptor Experience!

Nature’s Nursery takes in over 2,500 injured and orphaned wild animals a year! These animals all come to us from people just like you. We provide these rehabilitation services free of charge to the surrounding region, so our education fees help us to continue our work. Help to support our organization and enjoy an amazing Raptor Experience!!

About Nature's Nursery...

Nature’s Nursery Center for Wildlife Rehabilitation and Conservation Education is a non-profit organization located in Whitehouse, Ohio. We provide medical care to injured, orphaned or sick native/wild animals, and conduct conservation educational outreach programs for children and adults.

Our mission is to improve the well-being of Northwest Ohio wildlife populations and habitats through public education and rehabilitation, with an emphasis on coexistence.  We serve the entire surrounding region of 18 counties, staff and volunteers answer over 200 emergency calls per week and provide care to nearly 3,000 native animals per year; rehabilitating and releasing over 60% of them back into the wild.

Our organization does not rely on tax dollars, but instead upon public support through memberships, donations and community support organizations, such as Northwest Ohio Community Shares.   

We function with very limited staff, and instead rely on numerous, dedicated volunteers and interns.  The donations and volunteer support we receive also allows us to educate the public about conservation issues, the value of wildlife and to provide facts that will hopefully help to reduce human/wildlife conflict.

We accept most injured and orphaned wild animals that are native to Ohio. However, due to state regulations, we cannot take deer, raccoon, or coyote. We also cannot accept companion animals (dogs or cats), livestock, or domestic animals, such as domestic rabbits or domestic ducks.

Please consider becoming a member, making a donation or becoming a volunteer to help support our work with injured and orphaned wildlife.  Please explore our website to learn about a variety of additional ways you can help our cause through Kroger Rewards, Amazon Smile or purchasing items from our wish list!

We do not list our physical address to avoid animals being dropped off while no one is at the office. Those animals have very little chance of surviving when we are not available.

If you have an animal to bring to us please
call 419-877-0060 for directions and an appointment time.

to see if it may need help. Never Handle Any Bat that you have found, or allow children to come in contact with it. If you do, the animal will have to be destroyed so that it can be tested for rabies.

This is an example of some of the rehab activities that take place at the center to get animals ready for release.... This Coopers Hawk came in with a shoulder injury and damaged his tail feathers. He recovered from the injury but needed a new tail in order to be releasable. We used a tail from a bird that had died. Each feather must be attached in the proper order and at the proper length.

Here is a recent on of the fox kits we received earlier this Spring getting their first live mouse.  They are growing up fast!
