Santa’s Critters – Each year, we try to arrange for opportunities for the children to experience a variety of animals that they may not have previously encountered.  We have had a petting zoo, pony rides, horses, alpacas, deer, hawks, owls, various wildlife, and therapy dogs.  While most of these exhibits are outside, you might find an occasional domestic or wildlife display inside.

Purpose: Urban children have limited exposure to animals, aside from domestic pets.  Contact with animals of these types is not only therapeutic but also helps broaden the experience of the children and increase their awareness of and respect for all life.
