Fall is here! ‘Tis the season of crunchy leaves, sweet apples, and harvest time. Come on out to celebrate autumn on the family farm. A wagon ride, a bonfire, and a visit with our horses make this a very special evening. We’ll even work together to make some delicious homemade applesauce! Please note that this program begins at 6:00 pm!

These classes are especially designed for young people (ages 4–9) and their favorite adults. Our activities, excursions, crafts and games will make learning fun for young and old alike. The whole Zoo is our classroom and visits to “behind-the-scenes” areas with zookeepers and trainers will make each class special.
