Our zoo extends beyond Smithfield, Illinois, as we are very active participants in the community.  We strive to bring the educational and therapeutic experience to those who are not always able to come and see us.  Our animals have visited nursing homes, Head Start, handicapped facilities, as well as schools and summer recreation programs. 

The zoo is also a great place for field trips!  Let your students experience wildlife, not just learn about it!

If you would like the animals to come visit for your special event or you would like to come visit us please contact us.  We would love to hear from you!

Be sure to call us or email us about scheduling a private viewing for your family or group!
