Indoor Hours

Enjoy a visit to The Creature Conservancy - we are open to the public for indoor/outdoor visits on Saturdays and Sundays from 1:00pm - 5:00pm (and for outdoor visits 7 days a week - see below for details)!

Every weekend you can meet and learn about many fascinating creatures. Harper the cougar is our featured animal for the month of May! See her on the Stone Stage every Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 only. The 2:00 Stone Stage presentation for the month of May will substitute the two-toed sloth! Meanwhile, you will still be able to view Harper in her own enclosure all afternoon before and after her 4:00 presentation.

Arrival by 1:45 or 3:45 is advised if you'd like to see a feature presentation.

Outdoor Display Animals

Visit our outdoor display animals from 10am - 6pm (or dusk, whichever is earlier), seven days a week! Please note, however, that not all of our animals are on display all of the time. This is especially true during the cold months, when we take them inside for warmth.

The animals on display may include the emus, black swans*, arctic fox, turkey vultures*, black vultures*, cravens*, muntjac, macaws*, wild turkey, peafowl, goat, horses, miniature horse and miniature donkeys.

A suggested donation of $2/person may be left in the black donation box at the wooden ticket booth along the sidewalk near the arctic fox enclosure.

Visit our gallery page for photos of the animals you may be able to view!
