A Barn Hill Preserve Animal Show is a 30 minute educational presentation featuring five of our awesome animal ambassadors!


During the show, you and your group will learn about each animal’s behaviors and other fun facts about them, even get to touch and feel some of those animals as well! If you are interested in a more interactive experience, the Encounter Tour is for you!


An encounter tour includes the animal show PLUS our kangaroo walkabout and encounters with our birds, a small mammal, and three reptiles! Sloth encounters are also available as an additional add-on to both types of experiences.

Hear From Satisfied Guests

Guess what part of our BEACH vacation our family loved the most?? Nope, not the beach - Barn Hill Preserve!! The animal encounters were the highlight of our entire trip! The staff were enthusiastic, sweet, and very knowledgeable about each animal. The location was clean and orderly. The animals were AWESOME!! We're definitely going to visit again!
