Kansas Wildlife Exhibit
The Kansas Wildlife Exhibit is free to visit every day of the year! The best time to see as much as possible is during the feeding time program. It begins at noon each day and lasts approximately 30-45 minutes. That includes every weekday, weekend and holiday. Located in Central Riverside Park at 700 Nims, the Kansas Wildlife Exhibit (KWE) features exhibits with a naturalistic design which ensures the health and comfort of the animals. The KWE features non-releasable, and often permanently injured, wildlife ambassadors such as a bobcat, golden eagle, beaver, hawks, quail, turtles and more. There is also an indoor exhibit that is open after the noon feeding time program. Opened in 1988, the KWE continues a long tradition of free-to-check-out animal encounters in Central Riverside Park. There has been a zoo, in one form or another, in the park since 1901. Thousands of children and adults, who might otherwise never get the chance to see some of these animals up close, have a unique opportunity to do so for free at the KWE. Please follow @KansasWildlifeExhibit on Facebook or Instagram to stay up to date on our animal ambassadors and programs and try to visit during a feeding time program for a wonderful introduction and experience.
