Conservators' Center starts program for Girl Scouts

Posted April 2, 2014

A lion stands so a keeper can check his belly at the Conservators' Center in Mebane.

The Conservators' Center, an exotic animal park with nearly 90 animals, including 30 lions and tigers, has launched a program for Girl Scout troops.

The center near Burlington offers special events, programs and tours for Girl Scouts. They include Girl Scout Day 2014, which is scheduled for April 26, when visitors will meet animals from just 5 feet away, take part in scavenger hunts, make toys for the animals and learn about their care.

Other offerings including Wild Overnight, which is scheduled for individual groups. Troops can meet the animals and take part in activities before setting up camp in a large field on the center's property just outside the security fence that surrounds the animals' habitats. They'll sleep to the sound of wolves, lions, singing dogs and jungle cats.

I took my daughter a couple of years ago. We had a great time.
