ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park, is located in Hershey, PA and while it is a smaller zoo it offers great animal encounters and special programs year-round. We love to visit in the off-season, as it’s not as crowded and the animals are a little more active in cooler temps.
Take a look with me at the fun programs that launched for March, specifically for children. These would also be great for home-school activities.
ZooAmerica is committed to the conservation of North American wildlife and habitats. The more than 200 animals that call ZooAmerica home are native to five regions of the North American continent – from the dry deserts of the southwestern United States and Mexico to the expansive forests and tundra of Alaska and Canada. Visit ZooAmerica to learn more about these regions and the amazing diversity of North American wildlife and vegetation native to them.
Admission to ZooAmerica is $12.50 for adults, and $10.50 for kids. If you are a 2019 HersheyPark season pass holder, you also get unlimited admission.
