Upcoming Events

In addition to the numerous presentations we give for schools, clubs, private and corporate groups, The Creature Conservancy schedules several events each year that are open to the public. Below is a list of the upcoming opportunities to meet, learn about, and sometimes touch cool creatures from around the world.

Many of these events are held in the Special Events building at The Creature Conservancy (4940 Ann Arbor-Saline Rd) while others take place at locations around the community - and the country!

Sunday, October 12th, 2014 - Creature Feature logo in Ann Arbor

5:30 - 8:00 pm at The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Enjoy an evening of excitement and meet over 80 of our most gregarious animals at the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum's annual Creature Feature event! You will find our four large exhibits on the main floor of the museum. We are featuring animals from four continents: Australia, South America, North America, and Africa. Each exhibit will have several of our volunteer staff members on hand to introduce you to the animals and answer your questions. Don't forget your cameras!

Tickets should be purchased in advance as this is always a sold-out event. See the Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum website for details, and look through the photo gallery below to see photos of past Creature Feature events!
