They have done some amazing things here over the past few years. New exhibits, a fun interactive trail for the kids (fun for snowshoeing during the winter), and very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Had a few extra hours and couldn't have picked a better stop. Great exhibits. Be sure to take the nature trail uphill (not stroller friendly) for more animals, exhibits and great Utica views. Unexpected memories!

We've never been so depressed when visiting a zoo! The animals look like they are on tranquilizers or depressed or both!! I cannot explain our overall feeling of sadness as we walked from exhibit to exhibit and the worst of all was the primate house....More
