There is a self guided rainforest room, and always a ton of volunteers and staff around to help answer questions and engage the kiddos. We go often and still spend over 2 hours. You cannot miss the river... More

The staff always seems friendly and caring at this zoo. This is one case where smaller is better. We were able to see animals being fed and were given information on the animal's behaviors and age by staff. It is very noticeable that the staff knows and cares about the animals. The layout of the zoo allows you to walk... More
