CARING FOR OUR PLANET
"TreeHouse Wildlife Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established in 1979 dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation, and release of native wildlife while promoting environmental awareness through education."
Who We Are
TreeHouse is situated on 8 1/2 peaceful acres between Alton and Grafton, IL in the quiet town of Dow. We provide a professional community service to people in central and southern Illinois who encounter sick, injured, or orphaned wildlife.
TreeHouse Wildlife Center does not receive government funding. Rather, we operate on the kind donations of visitors and supporters, fundraisers, grants, and education program fees.
We invite you to tour our center and learn about the work we are committed to and passionate about. See our Visit Us page for visitor hours and browse the rest of our website for information on our organization, public events, and how to get involved.

Owl Fest is a free to attend, family friendly, two day event that takes place the 3rd weekend in October. It is a combination of a fall festival & our open house. This is the only event where our hospital and flight enclosure is open to the public. Our education animals will be available to meet and greet. The public will have a behind the scenes look at our facilities all while enjoying educational speakers, local environmental organizations, crafts, food, live music, raffle, vendors, kid friendly activities, and our famous teddy bear clinic. Accessible parking and shuttle service will be available. All ages are welcome, as there will be something for everyone to enjoy! For more information, call (618) 466-2990.
