Tours & Encounters
See our Education page for info on classroom visits and  other education programs.


For $25, our staff will provide a personalized tour for your group, where you can meet the animals and learn why they're here, how we care for them, and their place in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Please schedule tours in advance so we can serve you better!


For $35, your group will get a one-of-a-kind close up porcupine or turtle encounter. Please schedule animal encounters in advance; it takes time to get the animals and their handlers ready for an encounter.


Join us for a pair of week-long summer art camps with instructor Lindi O'Brien. We'll have one July 16-20 for grades 2-5 and one July 30-August 3 for grades 6 and up. The cost is $140 per student for the week, which includes all materials. Camps are 8:30 am to 12:30 pm each day.
