This is a great stop for high school and college kids who need lab class credit or have to do a paper. Little kids will definitely be entertained by the Gibbon monkeys when they howl in the AM.

This was a great experience for a group of Seniors. The Gibbons were singing ,Swinging and very entertaining . The docent filled us with all the information regarding their diet health, how they live in groups. Extremely knowledgeable and informative. It was a great day!

I had never heard of the Gibbon Conservation Center, until one day a few years ago, when I was at a vegetable stand that was on quiet Bouquet Canyon, and I heard the most unusual animal sounds in the distance. I was curious about them,...More

You'll get to understand why the conservation is so far off the community when you get out of your car. We were welcomed by a medley of whooping and screeching sound and it my 2yr old excited to see what the hullabaloo about. It has...More
