Welcome to the Catoctin Wildlife Preserve where people and animals get close - in unexpected ways. Ramble over 50 beautifully wooded and landscaped acres and gardens hosting animals who jump, swim, fly, roar and tweet to greet you.
Endearing Sun Bears, energetic Lemurs from Madagascar, Dingos from "down under" and some of the rarest and most entertaining monkeys in the world await you. Dangle your fingers among a hundred of brilliantly colored Japanese Koi in the Japanese Garden and watch the sunlight on the ripples of it's calming waters. Feed the dozens of free flying ducks and geese wandering among our ponds.
Yearly membership makes this adventure family affordable and invites you back time and time again for free. This 100 acre non profit Preserve is under the management of Global Wildlife Trust, a 501(c) organization dedicated to the preservation of wild animals worldwide and conservation of all our natural resources locally.
Located just north of Frederick, MD and about an hour from Baltimore, Bethesda, Leesburg, Chambersburg and Martinsburg. Call 301-271-3180 for information or to book a group visit or birthday party.
