Why We Help The Zoo

Hear it from one of our volunteers!

This zoo has a lot of animals that you can look at and take a ton of pictures. They have a petting zoo and in non Covid times you could pet the animals. Is nice enough that you don’t feel like this place gets crowed. There is shade in most of the area. The staff was super nice and was happy that you came. There is a nice size gift shop that has a lot of nice things”
