Want a wild start to your new year? Come celebrate the new year in a thrilling, unique way at our annual Tree Toss event. Tree Toss is a much-anticipated event that has become a tradition for our wild family. Each year, the friendly folks at Cranberry Tree Farm donate their unsold trees to the Animal Park, and we give them to our animals as a special form of holiday enrichment. They love the strong scent of pine and scratchy textures! If you’ve never seen wild animals receiving holiday trees, presents, and toys, don’t miss this chance. We want to share this tradition with you. Come join the fun! Make a Present for an Animal! We offer our residents more than just trees at this event—and you can help create these special gifts! Come before 11:45 and join us for the crafty fun! No special skills are required, and we provide all the materials. All visitors are welcome to participate! Throughout the event, our keepers will be giving keeper talks, and our experienced animal handlers will offer demonstrations of how we socialize, interact with, and enrich the lives of our animal residents.
