As a visitor, you can help protect the birds kept at CCEEC from bird flu. Here's what you should know!


Bird flu, also known as Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) is a virus that harms wild and domestic birds.

The risk to people is low, but the disease can kill hawks, eagles, and other birds.

On your next visit, please:

  • Stay outdoors and visit the birds along the boardwalk first

  • Come inside to see our building and displays after that

  • Do not return to the boardwalk after your time inside

If you have chickens, ducks, turkeys or other birds at home, OR if you're visiting to bring us a sick bird for rehabilitation, we ask you not to visit on the boardwalk at all.


Thank you for caring about the birds!
