About Us

Catoctin Wildlife Preserve and Zoo is a private, family-owned and professionally operated facility. Since 1966, animals have been our extended family. We know their names, histories, and needs. And we know how important wildlife and their natural habitats are to the future.

We hope that through our personal style of education and introduction, these wonderful creatures will become your extended family, too. Together, we'll make sure they and their wild-living relatives enjoy the future they deserve.
