Events at Your Location - for Kindergarten through Adults

The Creature Conservancy is able to take many of our animals to libraries, nature centers, churches, schools, universities, senior centers and other gathering points in the community within Washtenaw County.  We also create cool programs for corporate events by bringing our "zoo" to you!

These presentations and displays are most often designed for large groups of people during special events. Having The Creature Conservancy bring live animals to your indoor venue is a great way to spark interest and create a very memorable occasion.

We offer two options when we bring our animals to your location. We can give an active presentation for a seated audience at your venue with some of our larger animal ambassadors or we can set up a stationary display of smaller animals if that is more appropriate for your event.

Reading the FAQs below and filling out the Event Planner form will help us get started planning with you!

Events at Your Location FAQs:

How big an audience can you do a presentation for?  That depends on a number of variables.  The venue, age of participants and the animals chosen all affect the size of the group we feel comfortable accommodating.  With large groups, the normal hands-on interactions are typically eliminated and “Q & A” time will likely be limited.  Keep in mind that the depth and quality of the experience decrease as the audience size increases.

Can you come to our outdoor event if we have tents or other shelter? For the health and safety of the animals, we present only indoors when we travel to other locations.

Are all of your animals available to travel? Some of our animals are not able to travel off-site; the list on the Event Planner shows those most likely to be available for your presentation. Please keep in mind, however, that not all venues are suitable for every animal. We will work with you to choose the animals that can safely travel and be presented in your particular setting.

How many animals can we have for our presentation? The maximum number of animals we travel with is 6.

When can we schedule a visit by the Conservancy’s animals?  Fall is the very best time to plan these events because our spring and summer schedule tends to be very full.  We avoid scheduling off-site presentations from December through February because of the potential for poor road conditions. 

What is the cost for these events?  The cost of each program is determined by the animals selected, with a minimum of $400 per 1-hour presentation. Please note that the prices listed on the Event Planner reflect a discount for schools, libraries, churches, nature centers, and other non-profit organizations. For corporate or private rates, please add 20%, with a minimum of $500.)
