Today I had the extreme privilege of visiting the Wildlife Learning Center in Sylmar, CA. Fellow reader Tammy List, and volunteer over at the center, was an amazing host as she walked me through this small, but impressive place which houses some really incredible animals.

What’s funny about the Wildlife Learning Center is that it’s nestled away in a very unassuming spot. It sits within a typical Southern Californian neighborhood (and you better believe I’m soo jealous of the kids that live on this street!) but behind its chestnut fences lie a plethora of animals, from sugar gliders (above) to arctic foxes (below). You definitely have to check this place out if you want an intimate experience with some cool creatures.

They even do birthday parties where kids can interact with some of the animals!

The center is located at 16027 Yarnell St, Sylmar, CA 91342 and is open Mon-Fri / 12PM-5PM and Sat-Sun / 11AM-4PM. Ask to meet Tammy when you get there, she’s so friendly and knowledgeable! Not to mention she has great taste in websites 😉

Thanks again Tammy and the rest of the staff at the Wildlife Learning Center for showing me a wonderful morning!
