Tours of the Conservators Center during the spring and summer months are an amazing opportunity to awaken your wild side and reconnect with wildlife. But our seasonal tours offer breathtaking, once-in-a-lifetime opportunities unlike the rest of the year. Autumn visitors often get to see Arthur, our white tiger, set against a backdrop of orange and red autumn leaves; watch Trekkie and Roland, our gray wolves, celebrating their favorite time of year; and witness the power of our lions’ roars in the crisp, cool air.
The holiday seasons are just a little bit furrier at the Conservators Center. We are delighted to offer you specially themed opportunities to visit our residents throughout the year.
Seasonal Treats for Human and Animal Alike!
Trick or Treat
Created especially for our younger ghouls and goblins, this tour also welcomes children of all ages. Your tour guide will share stories of unique tricks animals use in the wild and lead your group to Howl-O-Ween treats throughout the park. Everyone is welcome to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes.
If you come on Saturdays, you'll also get an extra treat and can meet Popcorn, the Conservators Center’s binturong mascot.
Legends & Lore
Explore legends and history as you travel into the darkness with our storytellers. From man-eaters and monsters to gods and kings, learn how humans have viewed predators as much through story as science.
