The Conservator's Center is a bit off the beaten path but well worth the visit. Some friends and I went to see the "tree toss", where old Christmas trees are put in the cages for the animals to play with. What a great place! Every animal has a story and the volunteers talk about them as if they were their children. The highlight was when the lions began to "talk" to each other across the compound. Their roars sounded like we were in a stadium listening to loud speakers. Absolutely awesome! I'm looking forward to another visit in the summer.
