Listen to Tim Johnson and Stacy Borho of In The Neighborhood talk with Eva Kirschbaum of the Peoria Area's Wildlife Prairie Park. Wildlife Prairie Park is often referred to as a jewel in the Midwest. Located just outside of Peoria, IL, this 2,000 acre zoological park is home to over 150 animals; that’s 50 different species that are native to Illinois. Our guests come to learn about wolves, bison, waterfowl, black bears, elk, cougars, otters and much more. You will enjoy the Park’s spectacular natural landscape and our many avenues of recreation: hiking, biking, fishing, and lodging, and a train ride, too! Plan your visit today…an adventure awaits! http://wildlifeprairiepark.org/
