Targeted to any age group, presenters use interpretive materials and visual aids to teach basic characteristics of various animal species, including native California wildlife. This program also includes a 30-45 min. animal presentation with an array of animal ambassadors.

*All proceeds go to the care of the Wildlife Waystation animals.*

  • We must know if the event will be indoors or outdoors.
  • Please let us know if you can provide us with a table.

Community Events

Wildlife Waystation attends community events throughout Southern California. Volunteers and some of our animals help convey ways to co-exist with native California wildlife, why exotic animals do not make good pets, as well as the status of animal species in the wild. Literature and interpretive materials are also available.
