Who We Are

The YYC Nature & Education Centre is the latest endeavor from the team behind Calgary Reptile Parties. Since 2008 we have educated hundreds of thousands of people in person through birthday parties, school programs, libraries, events, fairs, and tours. Our focus is on messages of responsible pet ownership, conservation and understanding wildlife in our backyard and around the world. Our founder Jason Clevett was one of the stars of SCALED which aired in 195 countries on Animal Planet in 2018.

Unique Encounters

Our staff are dedicated to making each and every visit an enjoyable one. Each carries a passion for the animals in our care, and hope to spread that forward to you as you encounter, learn, and interact with our large collection of fauna. Every visit will be a unique experience to be cherished.
