This is the 21+ version of our popular children's program — Critter Camp. C & C is a casual learning experience in series format, so we focus on a specific topic or group of animals each session.

In-person (Atlanta) | 2 hour program | Offered one evening/month

'Reptiles and Wine — What could go wrong?'

Each Critters and Cabernet session lasts for 2 hours, and includes lessons mixed with live animal demonstrations and handling (if desired). There is, of course, no obligation to hold animals if you do not wish. The sessions occur in our glorious Amphibious AF Meeting Room, on the second floor of the Amphibian Foundation.

Instructors are Team Venom! AF's Venomous Training & Certification Instructors, who provide the venomous training later that weekend.
