Do you want to help create toys to enrich our animals’ lives? And learn about our featured animal? Then you would love AWCC’s newest event series: Animal Enrichment Day! On the first Saturday of every month, AWCC is holding a volunteer animal enrichment building workshop located at the Center (in Bison Hall). The three-hour workshop will concentrate on constructing a particular type of toy and learning about our resident animals from our expert animal care staff.
Just like people, animals need toys … especially when living in human care. The enrichment items serve several purposes – they engage, stimulate and entertain the animals. And on the human side – they provide our participants with opportunities to create these useful enrichment items for their favorite animals.
If you are interested and sign up in advance, we will waive your entrance fee (FREE admission), but space is limited. Click here to RSVP for the event.
