My husband and I attended this special Valentines event. Food, wine and beer were served before the staff gave a presentation about animals and their courtships and mating. We enjoyed it and would recommend any of their special programs.

My daughter took me to the Creature Conservancy in January on a snowy afternoon around dark. We had a reservation for a private tour but there were so few guests that we had an even more special experience. The people who run the Creature Conservancy are clearly dedicated to saving these creatures, many of which were abandoned or otherwise "found"... More

Hardly ever crowded and there's lots to see inside and out. It holds an assortment of animals from bats to a cougar. The animals seem well cared for. Not what you'd expect to find in an almost rural corner of Michigan.

South of Ann Arbor, about 15 minutes from the downtown, the creature conservancy has a broad range of animals to visit from sloths to turkeys to alligators. There are fees to see most of the animals which are former pets (for the most part). The 'farm' provides educational programs and even hosts birthday parties.

This was the most amazing experience we have ever had with animals! Better then the zoo, The Creature Conservancy dedicates their time in rescuing animals from the wild and from other zoos. The cost was only $8 an adult and you got to have one on one interactions with each staff member at each habitat, something the zoo will never... More

We have attended many parties at the Creature Conservancy, and they have all been not only entertaining, but also educational. They will present 6-8 animals and guests are typically allowed to get up close and personal with each species, from Kangaroo to Emu. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, provide background information on all the animals presented, and are patient and... More

Wonderful experience! It's not a very large facility however what they lack in size they make up for in the ability to get up close and personal with the animals. Staff are knowledgable and happy to talk with you about the animals. The animal talk on Saturday was great! We visited during the time the Sloth was the feature animal... More
