Where are we going today?

Since 1963, this small unique California zoo has been providing sanctuary to some very special animals. All are non-releasable. Many were raised, and rejected, as wild pets. Others were injured or orphaned in the wild. Most are native to North America. All have names and personalities, and their individual stories are posted at the exhibits, along with factual, up-to-date information about their species.The distinctive educational focus of the zoo promotes responsible and appropriate behavior toward all animals. The zoo teaches about common and uncommon animals, both wild and domestic, and includes those in between, like feral pigs and wolf-dog hybrids. Zoo programs stress that wild animals don't make good pets.

    Great park, lots of benches and two playgrounds, one for toddlers and the other for older kids.

    for being a small zoo near a public park it is great, they have wild peacocks running around turkeys and other small birds, fun for the whole family and relatively cheap. I really enjoyed the open field area where deer run wild.
