Please visit the nursery to learn more about the baby goats Jellybean and Peep, who were born on Easter, and our other happy new additions. This year we are welcoming back Nature Nick and Ranger Eric for some special interactive animal shows. We’re also excited to share some new shows and events, including the Horsing Around Show and Jonathan Wood’s Extreme Raptor Project.”
