2017 Summer Hours – Starting May 30th

May 22nd, 2017 | Comments Off on 2017 Summer Hours – Starting May 30th | Posted in Scales And Tails

We will start extending our Summer Hours as of Memorial Day, May 30th. We will also be adding in a fourth day, Tuesdays, to the line up of Public hours. These will be the extended hours as of May 30th:

Monday’s 12pm – 8pm
Tuesday’s 12pm – 8pm
Wednesday’s 12pm – 8pm
Saturday’s 10am – 4pm

NEW TUESDAYS! ~ “Scouting Tuesday’s” ~
Tuesday’s we will be open to the public like usual, however we will be putting a little more focus on helping out the scouts. Whether you are a girl scout, boy scout, cub scout, or an adult scout, wear your uniform to the facility and save a $1 off of admission.

We are currently in the process of getting a few of our entertainers certified as Merit Badge Councilors so that we can pass off any scouts who are working on a Reptile/Amphibian merit badge as well. Once we are certified, we will put out a product that should enable scouts to accomplish the goals of the badge for a minimal fee.

Just a reminder, there are no appointments required for coming to our public hours. Just bring you, your camera, and all of your friends and family!
