Educational Programs for Schools, Camps, Libraries, Scouts, and other groups.

Animal Encounters provides educational programs for a wide variety of audiences, including schools, camps, libraries, scouts, and nursing homes.

Our specialty is smaller group, hands-on presentations.  Younger children especially benefit from the close interaction with our tame, interesting animals.

Our most popular program for younger children is our Amazing Animals program.  During this program participants will meet a variety of small mammals and reptiles.  Many of the animals can be touched by the children.  This program works best for smaller groups of 35 or less (depending on room size), and due to its hands-on nature is not as appropriate for larger audiences.  This program is very popular with nursery schools, younger elementary school groups, and libraries

We also offer an Amazing Reptiles program for children ages 6 and up.  Participants will get to meet a variety of turtles, lizards, snakes, a baby alligator, and even one of our 12-foot plus Burmese Pythons!  This program can be done as either a small group, hands-on presentation, or as a demonstration program for larger audiences.
