Critter Club is back this fall. Meet a new critter each week during these eight free Saturday events that invite guests to come to Fairview Town Center to learn about and interact with some unique animals, including:
Sept 17 - Spider monkey
Sept 24 - Groundhog
Oct 1 - Kangaroo
Oct 8 - Arctic hare
Oct 15 - Asian leopard cat
Oct 22 - Skinny pig
Oct 29 - Tegu
Nov 5 - Porcupine
This is the planned schedule for the animal visits. Please understand that these are live animals and that it may be necessary to change the schedule if the animal friends are not feeling up to a visit that day.
Each event will start with educational content about the animal featured, including the opportunity for children to ask questions about the animal. Children will then have the opportunity to meet the animal, and in some cases feed the animal. Guests are welcome to take photos with their cell phone or personal cameras.
There will also be a special face paint design each week to reflect that week’s animal friend, an activity sheet for each week and the opportunity to enter to win fun prizes. Bring your lawn chairs and blankets (no shade structures please).
Depending on attendance, participants may be divided in to groups and each group assigned to an activity in a specific order. Various color tickets would be used to do so. Please follow staff directions regarding which activity your family should be participating in first and stay with your assigned group. Families should plan to go through the animal visit line together rather than getting in line multiple times with individual children. Note: If you arrive after 11:45am, you may not be able to visit with the animal.
Please do not bring any food or beverages with a strong smell to these events. Many of these animals have a keen sense of smell and food can distract them.
