Salato Wildlife Center in Frankfort

Salato Wildlife Center is the perfect place to spend an afternoon without breaking the bank. It's not too far from Shelby County, located off US 60, in Frankfort.

They have lots of informative, interactive inside exhibits. My youngest daughter loves all the fish! They have great outdoor exhibits as well! Some of their animals on exhibit outside include a black bear, bobcats, birds, deer, bison, and more! Many of the animal exhibits have something fun for the kids to 'play' on....a huge eagles nest, a bear trap tunnel, eggs, etc. It's a very fun, interactive center, both inside and out!

There are also fishing lakes, hiking trails, and picnic areas on the property. My daughters and I don't fish, but we like to sit by the lake or walk out on the little dock and watch other people fish. It's also fun to watch the ducks and geese. It is such a beautiful place!

Salato has lots of meet and greets throughout the year where visitors can get even closer to the animals and learn more about them. Like them on facebook to keep up to date with these events.
