Meet the Animal Ambassadors

The animal ambassadors of Strawberry Hill Nature Preserve are available to visit with your group!  Programs can be held at Strawberry Hill or brought to your site.

Call 717-642-5840 or email to register!

Our current animal ambassadors include a variety of snakes, turtles, amphibians, bees, and fish.  Choose one of our most popular animal talk themes or suggest something unique for your group!  Our naturalist-handlers will also bring exciting “biofacts” for your group to see, touch, smell, and hear!


Popular themes include:

  • Animal Diets
  • Scales & Skins
  • Predators vs. Prey
  • Reptile Talk
  • PA Natives
  • Ecosystem Services

Typical animal ambassador programs are 45 minutes long.
