Snowdon Wildlife Education

Education is an important mission of the organization. Snowdon reaches the public both on and off-site. Although the public is not allowed into the wildlife rehabilitation areas, visitors are welcome to visit our educational dome and visitor center from Memorial Day through Labor Day. We regularly feature our educational birds during dome hours.dome

Wolverine Exhibit

Last summer we were proud to feature an exhibit about the elusive wolverine, including a rare wolverine skeleton. Wolverines are one of the rarest mammals in North America. They live in remote, high-elevation forests and tundra far away from humans. There are only a few hundred wolverines left in the lower 48 United States and Idaho is one of the few places they are found.
