A gift for the family

Winter wildland wonderland

Breathe in the crisp mountain air and watch in delight as our animals enjoy holiday-themed treats and enrichments. Stroll paths laced with winter magic and decorations. Chat with keepers at 11:30am and 1:30pm.

Creating Winter Wildland

The animals will receive a wide variety of enrichment: cardboard gingerbread houses, paper chains, and even Christmas trees. All the enrichments are thoughtfully crafted by staff, are holiday-themed, and filled with meatballs, veggies, chopped fruit, or other yummy items to attract skunks, lynxes, beavers, and others to explore and investigate.
