Classroom Presentations - for Kindergarten through Adults

The Creature Conservancy offers custom presentations at our location that meet the needs of school-aged and adult groups. Our 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 opportunity to meet and learn about the widest variety of animals.

For schools and other school-aged groups such as scouts, 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.

The following gallery shows many of the animals available for presentation to school-aged and adult groups.

Programs at the Conservancy FAQs:

What age range are your programs appropriate for? With the appropriate selection of animals and by adjusting the depth of information, our presenters can tailor programs to be appropriate for school aged children through adults.

What if our group is larger than 30 people? Our presentations work best for groups no larger than 30, but we can consider other options. Let us know your needs when you submit an inquiry (see below).

What days and times are available for events? We're fairly flexible - let us know what works best for your group. We typically schedule programs 6-8 weeks in advance, so the sooner you get in touch, the better the chance that we'll be able to accommodate your preference.

Is there space available for our group to have its meeting, additional activities, and/or refreshments after the presentation? Yes, there is a small fee for the use of the kitchenette and the adjoining meeting room on weekdays - please inquire.

Are field trips available? Yes. See our Field Trips page if you would like to arrange a longer visit to the conservancy which would include both a classroom presentation and a guided tour of the animals in their indoor and some outdoor enclosures.

Are there restrooms available? Yes, and they are handicap accessible.

What parking is available? There is parking right in front of the building, as well as ample room for buses to turn around and park behind the building.

Is the building handicap-accessible? Yes it is. The presentation rooms are on the ground floor and the sidewalk is ramped from the parking lot to the door.
