Enjoy up-close encounters with very special animal ambassadors in a cozy and natural setting. During the winter the only animals you might not be able to see are the Black Bears and the Raccoons who are hibernating during the cold season. All the other animals are visible and they love snow just as much as we do!Once your visit outside is finished
