After years of dedicated commitment to wildlife education and conservation with our sister park in Louisiana, Barn Hill Preserve is thrilled to announce its rebrand to Coastal Wilds. This exciting transformation better reflects our park’s individual identity, local community, and growth over the last few seasons.

Coastal Wilds, formerly known as Barn Hill Preserve, has been a home for over 35 diverse species of animals, including otters, two-toed sloths, red kangaroos, and many more. As we step into this new chapter with the name Coastal Wilds, we remain devoted to providing enriching educational experiences that inspire a passion for wildlife conservation.

Visitors to Coastal Wilds can look forward to hands-on and up-close encounters with our animal ambassadors, creating memorable moments while our knowledgeable educators share insights about each species. Our mission is to not only showcase the beauty of these incredible creatures but also to instill a sense of responsibility and empowerment in our guests to make a positive impact on the environment.

In addition to our Otter Swims and Encounter Tours, Coastal Wilds offers unique seasonal events and tailor-made programs for schools all over the East Coast. Our educational initiatives aim to cultivate a passion for wildlife in future generations, making sure they are equipped with the knowledge and motivation to protect our planet’s biodiversity.
