Come face to face with owls, vultures, eagles, a peregrine falcon and more during incredible free flight bird of prey demonstrations presented by The Canadian Raptor Conservancy. Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo and The Backyard Conservation Fund of Canada will be on hand with alligators, boa constrictors, rat snakes, tarantulas, turtles, iguanas, and an amazing young bobcat.

There will be 2 alternating 30 minute formal presentations, one by the Canadian Raptor Conservancy and the other by Little Ray’s Reptile Zoo. These fun, highly educational, incredible programs will alternate 15 minutes apart. On top of the shows and presentation area, there will be a 5,000 square foot exhibit highlighted by beautiful informative panels, 14 live animal exhibits, and staff with animals out for you and your families to interact with and ask questions. This is last minute booking and we are sorry we could only do this during the week but we are very glad we are able to arrange a stop in High River on our way through Alberta. Come and meet the fastest animal in the world and many many many other incredible species.

Give yourself a good 2 hours to see and do everything and bring your camera (no flash photography), your enthusiasm and enjoy!!!
