Fernvalley is pleased to be able to offer you the chance to work behind the scenes with us and become a keeper for the day!

Keeper for the Day experiences are open to anyone from the age of 9 upwards.

Adults are welcome too! Need a great, unusual gift for a friend or family member?...well look no further.

You will join one of our keepers for a day and help them to run the centre, this means you will be carrying out tasks such as feeding and cleaning out animals, helping with the public talks and meet and greet sessions and other day-to-day ativities.
