  • A magical and beautiful place with well-cared for animals. It was inspiring to see the legacy of community and donors and to read the storied history. Had some extra special moments with two ravens up close. Must be amazing in warmer weather but we had a great time despite it being a bit chilly.
  • Amazing experience, great place to take the kids. Very educational. Would definitely recommend. Bigger than it looks from the outside with lots of neat different locations and enclosures. Highlights include the bear enclosures, indoor bird of prey flight zone, and numerous other outdoor animal enclosures and a lane full of fish and turtles.
