We exhibit with birds, mammals and even reptiles nearly every weekend. This gives shoppers a rare opportunity to admire the beauty of the natural world, speak informally with our naturalists, and purchase great gifts that benefit the animals of Hawk Creek! Both malls have been generous supporters of Hawk Creek for years! So remember to look for your favorite feathered, furred, and scaled friends next time you are at the mall – and don’t be shy, stop and say hi!
