Meet Our Animals

eastern screen owlWarner Nature Center has 14 captive animals that help us educate people about the natural world. All of our animals are in captivity because they are no longer able to survive in the wild. Some of them are injured, like our Barred Owl who is blind in her left eye, while others, like the Spiny Softshell turtle, were formally pets and no longer have the skills to be competitive with their wild counterparts.

All of our captive animals are native to Minnesota and are wonderful representatives of the diversity of fauna in our state. Check out the links below for information about these fascinating animals!
