The Wild World of Animals wild-world-of-animals

The Wild World of Animals will be joining us for two stage shows throughout the afternoon.

The Wild World of Animals Show was voted one of the top five Edu/tainment shows in the world in 2007 by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. We have performed in 36 different states, coast to coast, and are always well received by children and adults alike.

The show involves about 13 different animals ranging from reptiles, birds and mammals. The lineup is very diverse, mirroring one of the themes of the show: the importance of all animals. The show is fast paced and has a great balance of fun and facts, which is sure to hold everyone’s attention.

Along with the wild World of Animals, Monarchs & More will have a variety of presenters sharing about Monarch Butterflies, Bee Keeping, Wildlife Animal Pelts, Bison, Composting, Water Quality and Soils, Maple Syrup making, Habitat Preservation, Organic Seed Planting, and more!  Conservation & Wetlands Trolley Tours will take place throughout the afternoon.

The State Bank Gives Food Truck will be offering delicious food & drinks for a free will donation to support Adriel Foster Care & Sara’s Garden.


Presenters Include:

Division of Wildlife, Fulton County Pheasants Forever, Fulton County Soil & Water, Fulton County Farm Bureau, OSU Extension, The Nature Conservancy, Imagination Station, Sara’s Garden, 577 Foundation and Sauder Village
