Frank A. Sharpe Jr. Wildlife Education Center

5834 Bur Mil Club Road
Greensboro, NC 27410


The Frank Sharpe Jr. Wildlife Education Center is located at Bur-Mil Park for the purpose of educating the public about wildlife and natural resources through programs and displays. Admission is free.

The Wildlife Education Center is housed in a renovated barn that has been on the property since the early 1900s. Julius W. Cone owned the original property, known as the Owl's Roost Farm and Poker Club. Later, the property became the home of wildlife and nature aficionado Frank Sharpe Jr., for whom the building is named. The Wildlife Education Center is a cooperative effort among the North Carolina Wildlife Habitat Foundation, Guilford County, the City of Greensboro and private sponsors.

The Wildlife Center features over 10 live animal exhibits, from snakes and rabbits to Iguanas and Bearded Dragons. A Children's Area provides a hands on learning area for toddlers and young children.
