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!
7:00 pm - 8:30 pm at The Creature Conservancy
Join us for our 3rd annual "Creature Courtship" program!
This very special event is for adults aged 21 and over. Enjoy wine and hors-d'oeuvres while you learn about romance in the animal kingdom. How does a male armadillo get around the female's imposing armor? Which reptile buries her eggs until the babies hatch and "bark" to let her know? Who has a circle of 13 teats to nurse her young? You'll learn little known facts about many creatures and their methods of seduction and reproduction. During this presentation, you'll get to meet as many as ten of our animals face to face!
Cost: $20 per person (paid with registration) plus a food donation for the animals. Foods currently needed most are quality brands of dry and canned dog and cat food in their original, unopened containers. For other options, please see our wishlist!
Programs start promptly. Plan to arrive 10 minutes early to get a glass of wine before the animals come out! Latecomers cannot be admitted once the presentation begins.
