Animal Trailside Encounters

See animals up close and talk to an animal keeper about how that species lives in the wild, what it eats, how it fits in the ecosystem, and more. Presentations happen daily at 11:30 am and 1:30 pm. Different animals will be stars at each presentation, so it's a surprise every time! Although only the keeper touches the animals, this is an opportunity to see animals up close.

Additional impromptu encounters take place throughout the day. Times are subject to change from October through May.

We are sensitive to the needs of the animals involved, so we cannot guarantee a particular animal will be presented on a given day. Animal behavior may alter program length.
