Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge, located 7 miles south of Eureka Springs, Arkansas, on Scenic Highway 23, will celebrate with Goober, their 24 year Rhesus Maque monkey, as he steps into a brand new enclosure. The feisty monkey has been a part of the Turpentine Creek family since the beginning and is a favorite for many return visitors to the Refuge. His new enclosure is approximately 180 square feet, with a variety of benches, hammocks, and toys for the energetic primate to explore and play with.
So, plan a visit to Turpentine Creek on Sunday, March 13th to enjoy the fun and celebration as Goober discovers his new home.
The USDA rescue facility, home to 114 Big Cats (tigers, lions, cougars, etc.) as well as a variety of other animals, is open at 9:00 a.m. daily. Regular admission prices are $15.00/adults; $10.00 veterans, seniors, children 4-12; children three and under admitted free. This is a great attraction for all. Spend the day with the animal and help insure their continued care. Just a short trip from The Angel at Rose Hall, a Eureka Springs Bed and Breakfast and Eureka Springs Wedding Chapel.
