A message about COVID-19  

To help stop the spread of the coronavirus, our petting zoo has been temporarily closed for all in-person animal visits since March 13th. Please be assured that all of the animals are spending their days happily lounging around being spoiled as usual. Safety is key- we are monitoring the situation daily and will start to book in-personal animal visits when the time is safe to do so.

In the meantime, we happy to be offering Mini-Animal Session-Lessons at no charge to all educators.

Our mission in what we do

We, at Little Explorers, are professional educators who have a passion for animals and their positive influence they can bring to others! We strive to share this through our educational programs and gentle interactions with our animals through hands-on guided activities. We are committed to helping our guests reconnect with wildlife by building friendships with our animals and practicing empathy and kindness towards these sentimental beings.

How Do We Treat Our Animals?

We believe that how we treat our animals is a reflection of how they treat us. The old saying "Do unto others as others would do unto you," is a great philosophy that we live by.

We try our hardest to keep their feelings and well-being #1 in our minds with each action we take. They are first and foremost our pets!

Their health & safety are our first priorities. We ensure that their enclosures are well maintained with clean facilities, fresh water, and nutritious food.

Our staff is always watching out for the animals to ensure that they are happy and healthy. Plus, it helps to be cuddled with every day, too!

What Do We Do?

We provide an opportunity for hands-on experiences with a variety of our friendly animals at the location of your choice. You can choose from one of our packages that include farm animals, reptiles, or a little of both. Types of events can range (but are not limited to) birthday celebrations, school and daycare visits, city events and street festivals, pumpkin patches, weddings, and photography opportunities. Events with 10 guests or 10,000 guests are no problem! We have great customer service, loads of experience and we love, love, love our animals!
