Due to COVID-19 concerns, FACE MASKS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL ANIMAL ENCOUNTERS. This includes Moose Encounters, Bear Encounters, Reindeer Encounters, Deer Encounters, and Porcupine Encounters. COVID-19 is a zoonotic disease and animals are susceptible. Masking keeps the animals safe.

Free Animal Programs

Free to all visitors, the animal programs listed to the left are a fun and in-depth way for visitors to learn about our resident animals. Though subject to change, most programs happen daily and are hosted by AWCC team members outside of the animal’s designated enclosure. Upon your arrival, check on the whiteboard outside of the Be Wild Gift Shop for specific times and locations.
