TreeHouse Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of native wildlife and the educational promotion of environmental stewardship and awareness. Established in 1979, TreeHouse rests on eight serene and beautiful acres of land in Dow, IL between Alton and Grafton, IL. TreeHouse offers an ideal atmosphere and expert hands in the care of sick, injured, and orphaned wildlife as well as a haven for those who cannot be released back into the wild.
The center caters to the interests of those with a curiosity for their wild neighbors through educational programming via in-house opportunities and outreach. TreeHouse has provided tours and educational opportunities to thousands of children on field trips, to scout groups working on badges, clubs, organizations, senior citizen groups, and even the occasional family wanting a more personal experience at the center. The center also provides a hands-on internship program for students seeking to gain experience in the wildlife field.
TreeHouse Wildlife Center continues its service to the community and wild counterparts through grants and the kind donations of daily visitors. The center is able to operate through donated time and services from local veterinarians, staff, and volunteers. Please visit our Facebook page for daily patient updates, events, and more information.
