To help ensure visitors can safely visit the Maine Wildlife Park, all visitors should follow these guidelines:

  • Reservations are required: Visitors must make a reservation prior to visiting the park by visiting mainewildlifeparkreservations.eventbrite.com/
  • Expect limited services: Programming, tours, shelter reservations and events are not available at this time. Wagon rentals and animal feeders are not available. Picnic tables are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The fish hatchery, visitor center and night house are also closed at this time. 
  • Out of State Visitors: Nonresidents can visit, but only if you have met the state's required guidelines.
  • Restrooms: Are available and cleaned regularly.
  • Stay Home If Not Feeling Well
    • Reservation Cancelation: Visitors should cancel their reservation if they or a member of their family are not feeling well.
    • Do not show up if you are symptomatic or have been symptomatic within 14 days before arrival.
      • Have you had a cough or sore throat? 
      • Have you had a fever, or do you feel feverish? 
      • Do you have shortness of breath? 
      • Do you have a loss of taste or smell?
      • Have you been around anyone exhibiting these symptoms within the past 14 days? 
      • Are you living with anyone who is sick or quarantined? 
      • Have you been out of state in the last 14 days? 
    • If you or a member of your party appear sick, we reserve the right to ask you to leave the park.
  • Practice physical distancing: Stay at least six feet away from other people who do not live in your household. If necessary, be courteous and step aside when passing other people on the park grounds. Be patient and avoid grouping with other visitors at exhibits. Remember, groups of 10 or more are prohibited.
  • Face coverings: Visitors are encouraged to wear face masks (except children under the age of two) in the parking lot, on the park grounds and when visiting restrooms OR in any circumstance when physical distancing isn't possible.
  • Don't touch: Avoid touching signs, kiosks, buildings, fencing, and benches to minimize the potential spread of the virus.
  • Pack snacks and water: Do what you can to avoid having to make stops along the way. The snack shack will be open with window service only and during limited days/times. We cannot guarantee the snack shack will be open during your visit due to limited availability of volunteers.
  • Watch out for ticks: Wear light-colored pants, closed-toe shoes, and apply EPA-approved bug repellent.
