The Highlands Museum & Discovery Center is excited to partner with Gary Bussa to present Des Coveries Wild Animal Show Parties.  Bussa is an experienced animal husbandress who trained under Suzie Rapp at Jack Hanna’s Columbus Zoo and worked for the Museum of Discovery and Science in south Florida.  He performs for party guests as Dr. Des Coveries, a Indiana Jones-like character he wrote in his educational shows for schools while in Florida.  Dr. Des Coveries is excited to share his passion for animals and exploration with the region’s youth!

Our Wild Animal Show parties are the perfect mix of fun and education for your child’s next birthday. Bussa has a variety of different animals including reptiles and arthropods.  He and museum staff will work with you to create a memorable experience for your child’s party
