Where: The end of Rua Petropolis, Jardim Marilea
When: Open every day except Monday, 9am to 4pm
They are home to such endangered birds as the White Beaked Aracari, the Tiriba Pearl, and the Pixoxo'.
One of their objectives is to educate the community about preservation of the environment.
There is a large parking lot to the right of the visitor center with easy access.
Inside the center is a space for artist exhibitions and special events.
There is also a small refreshment stand, a gift sop with hand made crafts, and a computer center with free access to the internet.
Most signs throughout the park have English notations for their non-Portuguese speaking guests, but none of the staff speak English. Unless you have a guided group tour, this won't be a problem.
Inside are several bird feeding stations filled with seeds, and fresh fruit is hung from several trees daily.
For example, the pitinga fruits. We had a guide during our visit, and he picked a few fruits for us to try. Pitanga is really good, although a bit sour, and has a large white pit in the middle. Tasty!
