Animal Forest Enrichment Day

We all need our lived enriched- seeing a movie on a Friday night, going to a playground, eating at your favorite restaurant. Going through the same motions day after day wears on everyone, and everything. Variety is the spice of life, as the saying goes - especially if you live in a zoo! So, zookeepers regularly develop creative ways to enrich the lives of the animals in their care. The "toys" that they create keep the animals active and engaged, which makes them healthier.

As a part of the Enrichment Day festivities, you will have a unique opportunity to meet Jim Fowler. Mr. Fowler, of Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, was instrumental in the design and creation of the Animal Forest at Charles Towne Landing in 1970. Please join us as Jim Fowler welcomes two new animals to the collection. We are pleased to announce that we are again home to an elk and for the first time in our 47 years we will be home to a bald eagle.

We will be opening the Elk habitat and new Bald Eagle exhibit to the public this coming Satureday at our Animal Forest "Enrichment Day". There will be featured programming throughout the day and a special appearance by Jim Fowler of Mutual Omaha's Wild Kingdom at each of the Ribbon cuttings for the two new exhibits at 1pm and 2pm.

Admission to the park is $10 for adults, $6.50 for South Carolina seniors, $6 for children ages 6 to 15 and free for children 5 and younger. A Park Passport that grants admission to all South Carolina state parks can also be purchased.
