Wendt's Wildlife Adventure

From sloths, kangaroos and camels to emu, cattle & the much-loved Parakeet Encounter, you will get to view, interact with and learn about many diverse and interesting species at this family-owned zoo. You’ll even have the opportunity to pet and feed many of the animals!


While the animals are the stars of the show, there is more to see and do during your visit! Bring a picnic and take in the sights and sounds at one of the picnic areas. Then let the kids expend some energy on the playground, or have some fun exploring by the creek that runs through the property. While here be sure to visit the Daniel Boone historic site situated on the very land where Daniel Boone once lived and hunted, including the cabin which was built by Boone in 1795.

There will be a short educational show/talk that lasts about 30 minutes. After that, you are free to walk around and explore the remainder of your time.
