Meet the Creek

Get to know our animals and explore the natural world through our guided Meet the Creek programs.

Join our conservation interpreters on Nature Walks at Shaver’s Creek! Walk the trails and enjoy the hallmark plants, animals, sights, and sounds of the outdoors. In inclement weather, enjoy a tour of our visitor center and the Litzinger Herpetarium. 

Visit the Klingsberg Aviary for Good Raptornoon to watch our animal trainers work with our resident raptors and discover how we use positive reinforcement training and enrichment to ensure the well-being of our birds. Learn about species-specific behaviors and how you can support wildlife conservation at home and in the community. The informal nature of this program is perfect for those interested in a more personal experience with our animals.
