The Hutchinson Zoo features wild habitat exhibits with naturalistic settings. River otter, pronghorn, bison, coyote, ringtail, bobcat, reptiles, porcupine, golden eagles, and native birds are but a few of the animals. The Animals & Man Exhibit offers opportunities to pet domestic animals from around the world.
Specially designed tunnels at the Prairie Dog Complex offer children a “prairie dog view” of the zoo and a giant spider web offers a climbing adventure.
Live animal education presentations are offered at the Discovery Center for groups of 10 or more by prior arrangement.
Construction began in 2001 on a new log cabin-styled Friends of the Zoo visitor center. The center houses a gift shop, conference room and wildlife library.
