Bring your friends and family and join us for one of Chicagoland’s largest reptile exhibitions. Enthusiasts and experts from around the region will exhibit more than 150 snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises and more. Visitors will have opportunities to meet, handle, and learn about many of these animals with representatives from museums, universities, zoos, nature centers and private collections. Featured exhibitors include the Wildlife Discovery Center who is hosting this event, Crosstown Exotics, the Chicago Herpetological Society, Friends of Scales Reptile Rescue, Coal Black Exotics, The Field Museum, the Madison Herpetological Society, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum and the Grove Nature Center. Children will be able to engage in many activities, including face-painting. A silent auction benefiting the Wildlife Discovery Center and various conservation programs (such as the Crocodile Specialist Group of the International Union of Conservation Nature, the Crocodilian Advisory Group of the Association of Zoo and Aquariums, and the Turtle Survival Alliance) will be ongoing throughout the day. Don’t forget our amazing photo booth featuring the WDC menagerie!

Reptile Rampage is the Wildlife Discovery Center’s annual spring fundraiser. Proceeds help support the work of the WDC, including the care of its animals, wildlife and environmental educational programming. The entrance fee is a $10 donation per person at the door. Children age 3 and under are free.

The Wildlife Discovery Center is a living museum and biological station at historic Elawa Farm, situated alongside the Middlefork Savanna, a 670-acre wildlife habitat in Lake Forest. This year, the Wildlife Discovery Center is celebrating its 20th Anniversary.
