One of a Kind Zoo

We had fun visiting the zoo Sunday with our granddaughter, not just any zoo, but the only zoo in this country located at a high school. The Trevor Zoo was established in 1936 at Millbrook School, (a coeducational independent high school in Millbrook, New York) by Frank Trevor.  Mr. Trevor was Millbrook School’s first biology teacher, and a man with a passion for sharing his love of wildlife with all people, especially children.

I liked the zoo's compact size which afforded up close and personal views of the animals, and just the right amount of time to cover with small children, bamboo lined pathways, and child oriented displays.  

Other interesting facts about the Trevor Zoo include:

  • It houses more than 180 exotic and indigenous animals
  • 80 different species are represented
  • It is home to 7 endangered species
  • Its facilities extended over 6 acres
  • It operates a veterinary clinic

If you are in the area and would like to visit, check out their website.

Lots to Discover,
