Conservator’s Center Pumpkin Prowl

Pumpkin Prowl 2017
Grab a coat and a friend, and join us on Saturday, November 11th for our annual Pumpkin Prowl, the most unique way to celebrate autumn in North Carolina!
Join us in selecting, decorating, and carving the pumpkins, while enjoying food and drinks from local vendors.  Then we decorate our animals’ enclosures with stuffed, scented, or painted pumpkins to celebrate the season. Our animals love finding these new fascinating items in their habitats, and we enjoy watching as they investigate their gifts.
Enjoy food and drink from our favorite vendors, and join us in selecting, decorating, and carving the pumpkins; then watch as our keepers decorate our animals’ enclosures and introduce our animals to an autumn wonderland.  
At Pumpkin Prowl, you’ll also have the option of learning interesting tidbits about how we care for our animal residents from the trained handlers and keepers at the Conservators Center!
