Cache Valley’s Spring Baby Animal Days at the American West Heritage Center is back! We are excited to announce that we have been approved to open the event to the public for a grand re-opening on Memorial Day weekend. We have been working hard behind the scenes to create an experience that is CO-VID 19 compliant and available for our patrons to enjoy again. You and your household can safely enjoy an interactive, hands-on experience with many of our animals including baby chicks, baby mini goats, baby turtles and more! Other animals that will be joining us include a baby zebra, baby foxes (kits), a teenage camel, and if the stork lands in time we may have baby bison (red dogs).

Tickets are available at the door but advance ticket reservations are encouraged and the number of guests allowed will be limited to ensure that social distancing requirements are met. Guests are encouraged to wear face masks or facial coverings while visiting.
