Safari Film Fest August 13 & 14

This Saturday and Sunday, museum visitors will have a chance to watch local, and not so local, history come alive while learning why it’s important to not just remember the past, but to preserve it for future generations.

The Safari Museum started hosting film fests 13 years ago as a way to get Martin and Osa Johnson’s films transferred to DVD so they would be available to fans […]

Adventure Duck Race July 16, 2016

This year, the Martin and Osa Johnson Safari Museum will conduct its 2nd annual “Adventure Duck Race” fundraiser. The idea is simple—”adopt” a rubber duck and join us at the Maring Aquatic Center on Saturday August 16th at 10am to watch a whole bunch of rubber ducks race down the Lazy River!   The event will start at 10am with the official Adventure Race to begin around 10:45.  Duck Racer sponsors do not need to be present to win, but we hope you’ll turn up for a “quacking” good time.

Admission to watch the event will be $1 per person; admission is free to any and all who have purchased at least one racer. Duck adoptions and sales are ongoing and the cost is $5 each or a “Quack Pack” of 5 Racers for $20.  The adopted and numbered racers stay at the museum and come in two sizes.  This year, the museum is also selling the larger ducks ahead of the race so they can be decorated.  The cost is the same as the numbered ducks, but there will be a race entrance fee at the gate of $1 per decorated duck.  Decorated ducks must be at the gate no later than 10:30 & the only ducks that are eligible to hit the water are those that have been purchased at the Safari Museum.

The museum will also be offering a limited collection of “Safari Race Ducks” which businesses and individuals can adopt for $25 to participate in a special Sponsor Only pre-Race.  They, plus one very special “Osa Duck,” which will be a Cash Door Prize race option at the admission gate, will fight the Lazy River current to compete for top honors. All race […]
