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!

Zookeeper for a Day

May 7th, 2017 | Comments Off on Zookeeper for a Day | Posted in Events, Scales And Tails
Zookeeper Program for Youth ages 6 – 16:
Does your child have a passion for animals?  Would he or she love to have a chance to work behind the scenes?  Then this is the opportunity they have been waiting for!  Every Tuesday we will allow up to 6 children or teens to come in and be zookeepers for a couple hours prior to our Public Hours.  Participants will get the opportunity to help our staff, clean animal enclosures, prepare meals and feed the animals, learn reptile husbandry and simple vet care, handle animals that the general public typically does not get to work with and receive special training on how to deal with reptiles in the wild.  Zookeeper duties will vary week to week so each session will not be the same.
Cost will be $35/child.  Zookeeper time frame: 3 hours.  (Tuesdays: 8:30am – 11:30am)
Space limited to 6 participants per session.  Children can book multiple sessions.
Participants will receive a Scales & Tails Zookeeper T-Shirt
