Celebrate autumn in the wildest way imaginable: our annual Pumpkin Prowl event!
Pumpkins are a hot commodity in the autumn. From pumpkin pie to pumpkin spiced lattes, everyone wants to get their paws on them. No one knows how to celebrate pumpkin season better than the residents of the Conservators Center!
Grab a coat and a friend, and join us on Saturday, November 16th (rain date of Saturday, November 23) for our annual Pumpkin Prowl, a unique way to celebrate autumn in North Carolina.
From 11:00 to 11:45, decorate or carve a pumpkin as enrichment for our animals! Starting at noon, enjoy food and drinks from local vendors while the kids play autumn-inspired field games. While you’re enjoying the games, taking photos, and meeting our mascots, we will decorate our animals’ habitats with stuffed, scented, or painted pumpkins to celebrate the season. Starting at 1 p.m., watch as our animals discover these fascinating new items in their habitats!
Have you ever wondered what a caracal’s favorite scent is? Or which animals love whipped cream? During Pumpkin Prowl, while you watch the animals explore their enrichment at your own pace, you can also learn interesting facts about how we care for our animal residents from our staff and trained volunteers at the Conservators Center!
