Willowbrook Wildlife Center Naturalists assist in the center's mission by educating the public about native Illinois wildlife and serve as a resource for people who want to learn more about the natural world and how to live harmoniously with diverse, healthy wildlife populations. Willowbrook Wildlife Center presents over 350 scheduled educational programs throughout the year reaching over 13,000 adults, children, and families as well as school, youth, Scout, and adult-community groups. Topics include birds of prey, reptiles and amphibians, ecosystems, tracking, and endangered species. The center also has programs that meet Illinois' state curriculum standards to promote wildlife education in the classroom. Four year-round and two seasonal Naturalists, along with the help of several Volunteer Interpreters, make up Willowbrook's education team.
