Animal Adventures

Animal Adventures has been rescuing exotic animals and educating the public for over 25 years. We are the northeast’s foremost leader in exotic animal education and conservation.

Our team travels to over a thousand venues a year educating about wildlife conservation and leaving a lasting impression on our audiences. Our Bolton, MA facility opened in 1997 on a vision of our founders Ed and Brenda Laquidara, of a place people could come and learn, hands-on, about exotic animals. Ed began teaching about animals in schools, at birthday parties, and many other events over 30 years ago and has been rescuing animals since his youth.

In our seminars you will learn all about North American wildlife. What to lookout for when hunting and fishing; what you need to be cautious of; and what you do not have to worry about at all. We will also answer questions like: Do porcupines really shoot their quills? Do I have to run zigzag from an alligator? When will I know if a skunk is going to spray? And much more.

This presentation is for all ages and will include hands on introduction to some amazing animals!
