Attractions Category: Portland/Freeport
Exhibits over 25 species of Maine wildlife, including moose, black bear, lynx and bald eagles.
Although the Wildlife Park does not allow visitors to bring in food to feed to our animals, there are feed dispensers that take quarters to feed healthy snacks to our bear, deer, pheasants, ducks, geese, and turkeys. The fish hatchery also has a quarter feed dispenser for the brook trout – you can make the water boil with 1 handful of fish pellets!
You never know what wild animals you may find visiting at the Wildlife Park. We have seen: Great Horned Owls, Pileated Woodpeckers, Spotted Salamanders, Wood Ducks, Hawks, Turkey Vultures, Turtles, Squirrels, Chipmunks, White Tailed Deer, Mink, Fisher, Wild Turkeys, Baltimore Orioles, Cardinals, Bald Eagles, many Warblers, Bohemian Waxwings and more!
For those interested in shopping, the Nature Store carries a variety of wildlife related items for all ages. There are MDIFW t-shirts, hats, and fleece vests for both children and adults; wildlife books, note cards and magnets featuring our very own wildlife; plush stuffed animals, jewelry, posters and more! Much of the merchandise is Maine made. This is a great place for a gift or souvenir.
