Santa with the Animals



Santa brings presents to the animal residents here at Heritage Park Zoological Sanctuary! Join Santa on Sunday, December 10, 2017, from 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm, as he roams the park handing out gifts and treats to our very deserving animal residents. Earlier that day you can stop by the Event Center Lawn and help decorate the boxes that he'll be giving out. And later that day, Santa will also be available to meet with children, hear their holiday wishes, and pose for pictures. For more information, please call us at 928.778.4242.

ZooLittles Preschool Program

ZooLittles Logo
COME PLAY IN THE DIRT! ZooLittles is an exciting and dynamic program designed for pre-schoolers (age 3 - 5) to help develop young children's’ physical, emotional, and intellectual growth through exciting hands-on experiences. This includes working in the zoo’s organic garden to understand soil, plant, and insect relationships. Children participate in worm composting & understanding its role in soil development; they will also interact with zoo animals, feed them, and learn about their many different varieties, environments, and relationships. Group interaction in simulated and real environments will be promoted and encouraged with guided activities and free play time.

Vision: Creating opportunities for children to gain appreciation for and become stewards of the natural world.

Behind-the-Scenes Photography Tour

photographic tour experience - dartmoor zoo

Event Dates: Saturday, April 22, 2017 & Saturday, November 18, 2017
Event Time: 9:00 am - 10:30 am
Price: Members: $25, Non-Members: $30

Do you think you have an eye for photography? Do you wish you could get special access to the grounds and with the animals for photos? If so, this Photography Tour is just the thing for you! In the morning, an hour before the park opens, bring your best camera and get some amazing behind-the-scenes photos of the Sanctuary that you wouldn't be able to get otherwise!

On these dates, we'll tour the zoo for a special look at some of your favorite animals we have here at the sanctuary. You'll also be guided by our Animal Keepers, who will be able to provide special access for photos that you cannot get when the park is open. We'll bring animals out when we can, allow you into enclosures we're able, and let you beyond the barriers when it's acceptable. Some animals we cannot provide special access, but for many, you'll be able to get some shots you'd never be able to get otherwise.

The event will begin at 9:00am, and officially run until 10:30am, a half-hour after the park opens to the public. Coffee and tea will be provided for guests. Mornings provide great sunlight for photos, and it's a time when many of our animals are out and about. This start time will also provide attendees with an hour of unfettered access before the general public arrives. After the event, attendees are welcome to self tour the park (with regular access) at their leisure.

Pre-Registration is required and space will be extremely limited (we can only allow special access to so many people). Last year was our first attempt at this event, and even though we have some plans to make this year's installment better, it was still a great hit and sold out quickly. For more information on this event or to register (or to inquire when registration opens), please contact Lorette at 928.778.4242, ext. 16.
