It isn't very big but they have very interesting exhibitions. They have an animal of the month and show and explain this one in detail. The stuff seems to be very well educated. They also offer camps during school vacation.

My husband and I attended this special Valentines event. Food, wine and beer were served before the staff gave a presentation about animals and their courtships and mating. We enjoyed it and would recommend any of their special programs.

Hardly ever crowded and there's lots to see inside and out. It holds an assortment of animals from bats to a cougar. The animals seem well cared for. Not what you'd expect to find in an almost rural corner of Michigan.

We have attended many parties at the Creature Conservancy, and they have all been not only entertaining, but also educational. They will present 6-8 animals and guests are typically allowed to get up close and personal with each species, from Kangaroo to Emu. The staff...More
