Minnesota Zoo has been a part of the Apple Valley community since 1978. There are more than five thousand animals at the zoo and many of them are endangered. Kids and big kids get an up close view of animals and they get to learn about them as they go.
Minnesota Zoo has all sorts of programs. It’s Minnesota’s largest environmental educator. Some ninety thousand students participate in the programs. Conservation is an important piece in the zoo’s mission. There are special speaker series and programs, partnerships with the University of Minnesota, and special shows highlighting the work being done.
