Paint an Antler at AWCC!

Express your creative side on an antler.

AWCC is hosting a paint event unlike any other. Every year, antlered animals shed their old antlers and grow new ones in the summer. We collect them, and now we invite you to paint one! This event is a free-form style of painting. A variety of designs will be available for inspiration or go with your own unique style. Space is limited to available antlers and they will go fast.

NEED TO KNOW: All supplies, antlers, and admission are included in the price. Wear clothes you don’t mind getting a little paint on. No prior experience in painting is necessary. The event will be held in Bison Hall at the Alaska Wildlife Conservation Center.

Please arrive 10 minutes prior to the event start time to allow time to check-in, park and get your antler. Email us at with any questions you have. Participants are welcome to bring their own paintbrushes and paints if desired.

Please read our cancellation policy prior to purchase. Event tickets are fully refundable up to 72 hours before the scheduled event. After 72 hours event ticket(s) are non-refundable.

Back by popular demand, AWCC is hosting our Animal Enrichment Workshops again!

Do you want to help create enrichment toys for our animals? Then you’ll love AWCC’s event series: Animal Enrichment Workshop! On the first Sunday of every month from October through April, AWCC is hosting an animal enrichment workshop in Bison Hall. The three-hour workshop will concentrate on constructing enrichment items and learning about our resident animals from our expert animal care staff.

This event is a great opportunity to help create enrichment “toys” that will engage, stimulate, and entertain our animals all winter long. Children of all ages are welcome, so bring the family by for a fun-filled day!

The Animal Enrichment Workshop is $30 per person and includes project materials, admission, and catered lunch. Participants must register in advance because space is limited.
