Outdoor Display Animals

Visit our outdoor display animals from 10am - 6pm (or dusk, whichever is earlier), seven days a week! Please note, however, that not all of our animals are on display all of the time. This is especially true during the cold months, when we take them inside for warmth.

The animals on display may include the emus, black swans*, arctic fox, turkey vultures*, black vultures*, cravens*, muntjac, macaws*, wild turkey, peafowl, goat, horses, miniature horse and miniature donkeys.

A suggested donation of $2/person may be paid into the black donation box along the sidewalk near the arctic fox enclosure.

Visit our gallery page for photos of the animals you may be able to view!
