Animal Feeding Day
Join us for Animal Feeding Day! Animal Feeding Day happens every Tuesday, from 3:30 - 5:00 p.m., May 1st through October 31st. Participants have the opportunity to interact with our educational animals. Kids and adults, can hold and touch animals, while helping to feed them, as well as assisting with filling of water bowls and cleaning of enclosures. This is a great way for kids to interact with their peers and get some great volunteer experience. Many of our animal feeding volunteers go on to become regular RCPD volunteers and interns! All of our educational animals are native to Ohio, so this is a great opportunity for folks to see what kind of reptiles and amphibians are found in Richland County and the surrounding area. Please Note! The GNC Visitor Center is closed on Tuesday, but we will be open each Tuesday, from 3:30-5:00 p.m., for Animal Feeding Day!
