Join us as we celebrate some of the awesome animals you can find right in our own backyard as part of our Genesee Trail Awareness Weekend! From sturgeon to river otters, snakes, and more there will be something for everyone to get excited about. We will have animal enrichments experiences live on-site all weekend long!
Please note: all animal programming is always subject to change/cancellation without notice due to animal health, cooperation etc. Thanks for your understanding!
This weekend’s fundraiser will go to The River Otter Ecology Project, a great conservation organization that works in the field to support and protect river otters and the overall health of the watersheds they call home. For every $5 donated you will be entered to win either an otter-made painting or a a behind the scenes tour of the otter area with one of their keepers!
