Celebrate Kids' Farm, sponsored by State Farm®, throughout the month of April with special activities and events. Every day, we'll have special animal encounters, keeper talks, and demonstrations.
Every weekend, the first 500 children can take home a special Farm sticker, courtesy of State Farm®! Visit the lion/tiger information booth to pick up your sticker every Saturday and Sunday in April!
Only four years ago, we announced that budget cuts would require closing the Kids' Farm exhibit. The outpouring of support from our community was unprecedented. State Farm®, our generous "good neighbor," agreed to fund the Kids' Farm for the next five years. Together, we will commemorate this wonderful donation and our beloved Farm!
State Farm® will present a variety of activities with arts and crafts throughout the day and giveaways for visitors to the Kids' Farm exhibit.
