Nice display and thoughtfully laid out trails to view local scenery and animals. The trail is marked by animal tracks that my 3 year old granddaughter enjoyed. Go at your own pace and explore!

This is no ordinary zoo experience. You get to take a nice stroll through a trail in the woods, and every so often, you come upon an animal enclosure. These are all rescued animals who cannot survive on their own. There aren't a ton of...More

Went here recently to see the new wolf cubs and ended up staying to look at everything else. They have a diverse selection of species and its spread out so makes for a nice walk. They have discount for seniors and military service members.
