Located just west of US Highway 1, this is one of the largest wildlife rehabilitation centers in the northeast, covering over 60 acres and offering many recreational areas; over 5 miles of hiking trails are open for exploration. In winter months, skiing and cross-country trails are available.

The 50-plus acre area south of Lycette Road serves as a site for wildlife management which includes a large, stocked trout pond and a camping area for scouting and environmental groups. The Center also offers public education programs and school-group tours which promote proper conservation of wildlife and natural resources.

The Spruce Acres Refuge, which occupies 14 acres north of Lycette Road, is a rehabilitation center used exclusively for orphaned or injured wild animals. Visitors may see a variety of wildlife here prior to release that include deer, moose, bobcats, eagles, and black bears. The Center is open Tuesday-Saturday, from mid-May through the end of October.
