Olmsted County has built a brand new nature center and entryway for Zollman Zoo! Our new facility has the space and capabilities to deliver the right programming needs to the community.
The nature center offers expanded educational and recreational programs and activities. School groups participate in structured environmental education programs during each season of the year, covering not only animal life, but natural history, outdoor recreation skills, and ecology. The building includes class areas, exhibits of some of the more common animals, birds, and reptiles of the region, and displays and artifacts associated with our natural world. The expanded experiences allow groups and individuals more ways to enjoy the natural world.
Below is an interactive story map showing the progress and donations that helped fund the new nature center.
