The Animal Encounters department is responsible for the live animal collection, exhibit hall interpretation and the interpretive guide program for teens. We are a family museum that connects people with wildlife and live animal encounters/presentations are part of the experience.
We limit the number of participants (age 12 - 16) to about 50 and usually reach capacity every year. It is a fee based-program and participants commit to a year (Jan - Dec). A large percentage of participants return each year until they age out; we also offer advanced opportunities for those 16 - 18 yrs that want to continue at the museum. It's a great program, one we are very proud of.
