Took my 8 yr old Grandson. We had several hands-on experiences with animals. Got to see an old Vulture being carried outside of his cage by a docent. A totally wonderful experience.

We took our teenage grandkids there in January. We enjoyed seeing and touching the porcupine. We also had close-up views of hawks, eagles, and other raptors. It was a great outing.
