Ticket Info: http://www.conservatorscenter.org/visit-us/special-events/pumpkin-prowl/ Celebrate autumn in the wildest way imaginable... Our annual Pumpkin Prowl event!
Grab a coat and a friend, and join us on November 12th for our annual Pumpkin Prowl, the most unique and thrilling way to celebrate autumn in North Carolina!
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. Our animals love finding these new fascinating items in their space, and we enjoy watching as they investigate their gifts.
Have you ever wondered how we target-train Ramsey Leopard, or why it's important to be able to check a wolf's paws and ears, or what caracals like to eat for snacks?
Enjoy the fun at your own pace because Pumpkin Prowl is a self-guided walk-about event, meaning you can spend as much time as you want admiring the residents you find most enjoyable. Our staff will be stationed throughout the park to tell you about our animals and answer your questions.
Our favorite food truck, Porchetta return with their delicious spread.
One of our Partners of the Pride, Iron Gate Winery, also returns with wine for purchase by the glass and bottles, including some of our custom labels.
