“50 species on 30 acres”
With over 50 species, 20 that are rare or endangered, the Good Zoo was dedicated in memory of seven-year old Philip Mayer Good in 1977 and continues to thrive through the support of local residents. Our mission is to educate our visitors regarding natural and physical sciences and to promote conservation. Other newer exhibits include the Outback Exhibit and Lorikeet Landing. Additional features include the African wild dogs, meerkats, spectacled bears, lemurs, red pandas, river otters and the Wonders of the Wetlands area where visitors can observe a bald eagle and various other plants and animals that call these fragile areas home. The historic C.P. Huntington Train Ride takes visitors on a one and a half mile journey through the zoo. The red barn is filled with friendly domestic animals such as llamas, goats and donkeys.
