Kiddie Corral

On weekends we usually open a small petting area where kids can can have a close encounter with some of our smaller animals like chickens, rabbits, ducks, tortoises, alpacas and a long-haired guinea pig.

Kiddie Corral is run by volunteers and is only open if volunteers are available, which is most weekends. If you would like to volunteer, please pick up an application at the zoo gift shop.

Goat FEeding

Friendly (and hungry) goats can be fed with goat food for sale at the zoo’s gift shop until the day’s supply runs out.
