Common Questions About the Park:

What type of animals will be at the park?
Mammals, Birds, Amphibians, Reptiles will all be found at our facility. We will not be caring for any of the larger and/or more dangerous animals such as lions and elephants simply due to cost, availability of care and relocation needs during any possible flooding events. Our facility will be home to exotic birds, smaller mammals like the Red Fox and Red Kangaroo ,reptiles, amphibians and insects.

Where do the animals come from?
A large majority of the animals at our facility will have come from wildlife rehabilitation facilities that have found the animal to be non-releasable for medical reasons or the animals well being.. We provide these animals a home just as any animal sanctuary would. There are animals that will come from USDA breeding facilities. These facilities provide a substantial role in the zoological world as help stop the need of wild caught animals for gentic diversity as well as maintain the numbers of captive animals within the zoological field.

What will be the cost of admission?
We have been wondering about this during the entire development of the facility. Our goal is to have as much of the initial facility funded prior to opening. If the initial facility is fully funded by the time we open, we anticipate that admission will be $4.00 for adults and children under 2 will be free. If not fully funded we will address our needs but anticipate admission would increase by $2.00. As we get closer to opening we will update the website and admission costs accordingly. We want to ensure it is affordable for everyone to be able to come to the park as often as they would like.

What happens if the property floods?
This subject was deeply considered in the beginning of development. Although the property has flooded in the past it has only happened a few times on the portion of the property being developed. We are developing with the idea that it will flood every spring just in case. During the flood season a majority of the animals will still be off exhibit in their winter homes located off-site. The animals that do remain over winter have been selected for their size and ease of relocation in the case of high water. No animal will be living at the facility that does not have a secondary off-site location where it may be taken. The enclosures and buildings are being designed and built with high water in mind and the repair and upkeep required if high water does happen.
