Feed the goats!

Don't forget quarters to feed the goats and fish!

Exchange cash for quarters at the Admissions Counter.

** Please note: all of our animals (including the goats) are on strict diets. Goat feed machines are filled by Keeper staff once per day to ensure they do not eat too much of the petting zoo feed.

Ride the train!
