“Live feed of heron and her eggs”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Thank you so much for the live feed of the heron nest. I have been watching it with great anticipation of the eggs hatching. The first 2 chicks are so cute and watching this heron care for these babies is wonderful. She is building up the sides of the nest to provide more safety for them as they grow. She is feeding them so gently and keeping them warm. This is a wonderful Mothers Day present!!! Thank you Trevor Zoo! Linda Palugyay

“Great Little Zoo”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We were looking for something to do with our toddler who loves animals, so we decided to check out this zoo we had heard about. It's a very nice little zoo. You can tell all the animals are well cared for and there are a good amount of them to see. We saw lemur, emu, a wallaby, alpaca, marmoset, owls, otters and so much more. Since it's very small and it was pretty quiet there it was a great place for our daughter to walk on her own a bit, which she loved. It took us about 2 hours to see the entire zoo and felt we definitely got our money's worth since the entrance fee is just a $5 donation. We'll definitely be back and I highly recommend it for parents with small children.

“Best Little Zoo East of thePecos”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Trevor Zoo is a must see for all families visiting Millbrook. Located at Millbrook School, one of the many excellent private schools in this area of New York and Connecticut, it is managed by teachers in the school's science department, and staffed by their students. It makes up part of the schools "sustainability" program. A simple question to one of the staff can lead to some interesting insights as to why certain species are endanger and what is being done about it. We all enjoy our visits there, young and old.

“Simply Beautiful”
Reviewed 29 March 2014

We visited this zoo with a group of homeschoolers and had an amazing time. It is beautiful, scenic and very well kept. I also appreciated that they are teaching about endangered animals and conservation.

The staff was very pleasant and made us feel welcome. We went on a rather cold day and would love to come back when the weather is warmer. This place is definitely worth a visit.

“Hidden Gem in Millbrook”
Reviewed 10 November 2013

This small zoo is attached to the Millbrook High School complex and was created by a former biology teacher as a way for students to connect with conservation efforts in a hands-on learning environment. The entrance fee is only a $5 donation per person, and the zoo is open seven days a week from 8:30am to 5:00pm. During the week, students volunteer their time to help care for the animals.

There are a wide variety of species from around the world, including red pandas, turkey vultures, lemurs, coati, red wolves, hawks, and emu. The zoo is also home to seven endangered species that they are helping to save from extinction, and it is active in local wildlife rehabilitation, as well.

As a conservation center, the zoo is doing amazing work, and is a priceless local resource for students and educators. As a zoo, it offers quality over quantity, and is a fun, educational, and inexpensive outing for the whole family.
