Events at The Conservancy

The Creature Conservancy classroom can comfortably accommodate 25-30 people. Because some of our animals cannot travel off-site, bringing your group to our classroom provides the greatest choice of animals for your program.

The educational experience is best when presentations are tailored to the specific interests of the audience. Our experienced educators will by happy to help you design a program that supports your curriculum or has a particular theme. If you don't have a specific plan, here are some ideas:

Animals Down Under - a look at some of our most popular animals from the opposite side of the planet.

Rainforest Fieldtrip - let's explore the different layers of the rainforest while we look at animals from the emergent layer, canopy, understory, forest floor and the rivers and streams of the rain forest.

Creatures of the Night - visit the unseen world of nocturnal animals.

African Safari - you don't need a passport to meet some cool African animals.
