Ferret Feeding

Visit with FCMoD’s very own live black-footed ferrets, the most endangered mammal in North America!

Join us in the Natural Areas Exhibit to learn about the conservation work being done to return black-footed ferrets to the wild, from the national captive breeding program to new advances in cloning. Meet the different ferrets that live at FCMoD, and watch as our furry friends tear into their weekend meal. Who knows, you just might become BFFs with our BFFs!

Capacity for this program is limited and first-come, first-served. Free with museum admission; timed-tickets required. Reserve your admission in advance here.
