Animal Encounters

Shaver’s Creek is home to a variety of animal ambassadors that help educate students and community members about a wide range of conservation initiatives. Animal encounter programs are a one-of-a-kind way to get to meet our ambassadors in a more intimate setting while learning all about their background as an individual and their history as a species.

You’ll also hear more about the mission of the Shaver’s Creek wildlife program and have ample opportunity to ask questions and connect with our knowledgeable wildlife education staff.
