Lindsay Wildlife Experience, formerly known as Lindsay Wildlife Museum, is a family museum and wildlife rehabilitation center in Walnut Creek, California. It is one of the oldest wildlife rehab centers in the United States. The museum houses an interactive discovery room for children, a pet education section with small domestic animals, and rotating natural history and art exhibits. "Wildlife Hospital Behind the Scenes" lets visitors watch a live veterinary procedure at the hospital through a large, one-way window. "At Raptors" visitors can soar virtually over Mount Diablo and measure their armspan against raptors' wingspans. The on-site wildlife rehabilitation center treats nearly 6,000 injured or orphaned wild animals each year. After being treated, an animal is released back into the wild. If it cannot be safely released it may join the museum as an "animal ambassador."
