On Animal Enrichment Day, guests see firsthand how Grandfather Mountain cares for its resident animals. An enrichment is a special treat, new toy, or even an unfamiliar scent given to the animals to break up their routines and help keep them active and intellectually stimulated. Watch enrichment demonstrations, talk directly with keepers, and participate in family-oriented games and crafts. 

Activities kick off at 11 a.m. and continue until 3:30 p.m. at the Wilson Center for Nature Discovery and adjacent Wildlife Habitats.
