Free for ages 0-2, $7.00 ages 3-9, $8.00 ages 10 and up*

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!"

Let's get together and celebrate the season by enriching the animals at Black Pine!  Keepers and volunteers will be preparing for weeks ahead of this annual afternoon of fun, making pinatas in which meat can be placed for the carnivores, wrapping up new toys and treats for the primates, hand-crafting treats for the birds, and more!

Join us for an afternoon of seasonal fun as we deliver toys and treats throughout the compound.  We'll keep the hot cocoa and coffee flowing, light a bonfire to ward off any bitter temps, warm up with the reptiles indoors, and celebrate another great year at Black Pine, where with your support we will keep giving these amazing animals a high-quality home for the REST of their lives!

Be sure to dress for the fun, which will take place primarily outdoors.  In times of snow, Black Pine's pathways may be snow-covered in spots.  If it's icy, this event is subject to postponement or cancellation.  If weather affects our plans, we'll post an update here or you can call our office at (260) 636-7383 to confirm before traveling!

*All proceeds of Animal Enrichment Day help fund the added costs of winter care, including straw bedding, propane heat, hot water, and more.  We welcome your "wish list" donations, too!  Wish list items we request will be accepted in lieu of admission fees when of equal or greater value.
