Treat dad to a WILD experience this Father’s Day: Come out to the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park, where all fathers receive free admission to the NEW Zoo on their special day!

“Heart Bound Greyhound Adoption” will be on-site to meet with visitors at the front of the Visitor Center, near the entrance to the Zoo, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. This dog adoption organization serves East-Central Wisconsin and will have live retired racing greyhounds for you to meet.

Witness Abner, the Trumpeter Swan, display his parenting skills! The father of 8 cygnets hatched on 6/1/16 shares equal responsibility with his mate in raising their brood. Swan parenting includes lessons on where to find food and how to avoid danger.

Several of the swans raised here are now an integral part of the Midwestern wild breeding population.
