Living in Maine is such a gift to be surrounded by all the amazing nature and wildlife.

Often we'll see a group of turkeys crossing the street one day, or a deer in the backyard the next and then look up to see an eagle soaring above.

These sight are a precious reminder that wherever we live in Maine, we're very close to the woods filled with wonderful creatures.

The best place to see our wild neighbors all in one spot is the Maine Wildlife Park in Gray.

This isn't a zoo, it's a special sanctuary run by the Maine Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife.

According to their website,

"IF&W has placed a greater emphasis on education about wildlife and natural habitats in recent years, and has sought ways to incorporate wildlife management and conservation education learning opportunities into the exhibits, displays, and programs offered at the Wildlife Park."

Now that November is here, we thought you should know that there are only a few days left to get there and enjoy this magical place.

The park will be closing for the season Veteran's Day weekend.
