Randall Oaks Zoo – Programs
In addition to viewing, petting, and feeding our animals, the Randall Oaks Zoo offers unique programs for children of all ages. The goal of our Nature & Zoo programs is to educate and encourage children to participate in the preservation of our natural areas and the animals that live within them through hands-on projects and activities.
For a full list of programs being offered please refer to the seasonal program guide.
