It’s a winter wonderland at WildCare!

When winter makes its chilly debut
What do the wild animals do?

Some like to snack,
while others may nap.

Many travel a very long way,
and then there are those who adapt, so they stay.

Get to know our animal friends and how they survive until the winter ends.

Campers will have an unforgettable experience including animal encounters with our live non-releasable animal ambassadors, a hike to nearby Gerstle Park, wildlife-themed games, nature crafts, and much more!
