Great small zoo / science center with wildlife that's native to New Hampshire. Great place to visit with kids as well.
This is by far one the best not so hidden gems of Central New Hampshire! While it functions similarly to a zoo the goal of the facility is to rehabilitate and care for local animals found in the white mountains of NH. The animals who stay are there for medical or other legitimate reasons that keep them from living in the wild and are given wonderful care. The staff that works there is knowledgable and kind, eager to answer any questions about the animals you may have. The path to see all the animals is fun and equivalent to many easy day hikes with spots to picnic, and a wonderful play/learning area for the young and young at heart. It is a place my family loves to visit time and time again, never getting board of the wonderful animals, new things to learn, and great day that always ensues.
Absolutely exceptional place to go. I've been to other nature centers in Maine and New Hampshire and love this the most. The enclosures were well taken care of and the employees cared very much for the animals. The raptors were very well taken care of and the place was not run down like some other places. A lot of my family went of all different ages and every one of them was captivated by the beautiful animals. A very natural Scenic setting and much education. Check out some of the photos.
We drove up from Milford for a day-trip in August. It was an absolutely delightful experience for me and my two kids (6 months and 3 years). We used a jogging stroller and intermittently used a baby harness - both kiddos benefited from opportunities to ride, as the path is relatively long for little legs.
We were greeted by lovely staff, who gave us useful information about picnic areas (there are two) and bathrooms (there are several). Then we got to roam around the property, greeting various animals. There was a bat show and a Bard owl that we got to see up close. The only sad part was that the mountain lion wasn't on site the day of our visit. I will definitely be making the trek up to visit this place again next year.
Fun experience with wild animals and interactive exhibits. The animals are local wild species and fun to see up close and the information on them is presented in an engaging way for children. The walk around the loop can take a few hours depending on how long you spend at each stop but it's an enjoyable time and a great place for families.
