What is there to do?

Ready for that WILD family day out? Well, lucky for you Micke Grove Zoo has five acres of animals that you can come face to face with, giving you just that!

Micke Grove Zoo has been giving families an animal-tastic day out since 1957. You really can see creatures from all over the world - and you don't need to leave California!

Kids can watch those playful lemurs in the trees, or learn what a pudu is! Have you ever heard of a fossa? Well, there is one place you can discover that adorable mammal!

You can see how Bobcats interact, and learn about conservation when you visit species such as the snow leopard.

Let's not forget about the birds, either! Micke Grove Zoo has birds of prey, including the hawk, and stunningly colorful birds such as the Scarlet Ibis!

For those who love the reptiles, Micke Green Zoo has animals for you, too! There are adorable geckos, and turtles, and even a tortoise.

In fact, there are over 130 animals at the zoo, representing over 50 different species. 

Zoos are a great place for kids to learn about wildlife, habits and habitats, and really gain and understanding of the world, and why we should protect it through conservation - and Micke Grove Zoo is no different!
