Abstract:
Since 2006, Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park has experienced changes that go beyond its name, Sylvan Height Bird Park. Numerical growth is represented in fifty visitors a day to five hundred, staff of less than ten to triple the number, and a few exotic breeds to 2,000 plus birds. Its original five aviaries have expanded to nature trails, a playground, educational programs, and interactive exhibits such as the Landing Zone and Wings of the Tropics.
