Take a walk on the wild side at Barn Hill Preserve with our guided walking tours.
Barn Hill Preserve tour guides will show you around our beautiful 7-acre property to see animals such as our Eurasian lynx, macaws, servals, eagle owls, and much more.
The guided animal tour is a lot of fun and provides a wonderful educational experience to guests of all ages. Visitors to Barn Hill Preserve will learn about the animals, preservation projects, and history behind the facility.
The encounter portion of the tour allows guests to meet our exciting animal ambassadors up close. Guests have the opportunity to meet a variety of small reptiles, mammals, and even interact with a two-toed sloth.
