The Creature Conservancy

Upcoming Events

In addition to the numerous presentations we give for schools, clubs, private and corporate groups, The Creature Conservancy schedules several events each year that are open to the public. Below is a list of the upcoming opportunities to meet, learn about and sometimes touch cool creatures from around the world.

Many of these events are held in the Special Events building at The Creature Conservancy while others take place at locations around the community - and the country!

Please Note: Our events take place regardless of the weather.

Announcing our 6th annual Creature Courtship program! This very special event is for adults aged 21 and over.

Enjoy wine and hors d'oeuvres while you learn about romance in the animal kingdom. How does a male armadillo get around the female's imposing armor? Which reptile buries her eggs until the babies hatch and "bark" to let her know? Who has a circle of 13 teats to nurse her young? You'll learn little known facts about many creatures and their methods of seduction, reproduction and parenting. During this presentation, you'll get to meet as many as ten of our animals face to face!

Creature Courtship is now sold out.

Cost: $35 per person. Advance ticket purchase is required as seating is limited to 30 people per program. Please purchase early to avoid disappointment! A food donation for the animals is always welcome: currently the foods needed most are quality brands of domestic cat and dog food, both canned and dry.  

Please click the date of your choice for tickets, and have payment information ready.
