On a visit to the Conservators Center, you will meet our animals up close. An experienced tour guide will tell you their individual stories and describe each species and explain its role in its ecosystem.
Most of our friendly and curious lions, tigers, and wolves enjoy greeting and observing their visitors. You will be equally enchanted by our smaller species, including binturongs, New Guinea singing dogs, ringtailed lemurs, servals, caracals, bobcats, and jungle cats. Please note that tour participants are not permitted to touch any of the animals.
Today, the Center is home to over 70 animals, and more than 21 species; employs more than a dozen full and part-time individuals; and is a hub of volunteer activity. The park welcomes over 16,000† visitors each year from all over the state and across the country. In addition, the Center participates in collaborative educational efforts with other institutions that expand the educational impact far beyond the park’s borders.
