When you’re ready to take a step beyond a trip to the zoo, a new generation of wildlife experiences is waiting for you in Hamilton Halton Brant. Experience the thrill of a nose-to-beak encounter with a Great Horned Owl. Wake up a giraffe by hand-feeding it breakfast from an open-air safari truck. Spot a salamander in the crevices of the Niagara Escarpment that’s so rare and revered it inspires annual road closures to protect it on its spring migration. Come see for yourself why we’re more than a little wild for wild life in these parts.
