Did you know that the Trevor Zoo is one-of-a-kind? It is, in fact, the only zoo in this country that is located at a high school. The zoo was established in 1936 at Millbrook School, a coeducational independent high school in Millbrook, New York. Its founder, Frank Trevor, was Millbrook School’s first biology teacher, a man with a passion for sharing his love of wildlife with all people, especially children.

And there are plenty of other interesting facts about the Trevor Zoo:

It houses more than 180 exotic and indigenous animals

80 different species are represented

It is home to 9 endangered species

Its facilities extended over 6 acres

It operates a veterinary clinic

It is one of 216 zoos in the U.S. accredited by the AZA (Associations of Zoos and Aquariums)

  • Very cute place! The only downside was many of the animals weren’t there- inside or outside. We did see TONS of turkey vultures, lemurs, snakes, turtles, emus, a rabbit, fish, cranes, marmosets, and turkeys. There were no river otters or deer and many of the cages were empty so I’m not sure what would be in them. My son was 3 so his admission was free and it was $6 I believe for an adult ticket which was an extremely affordable price. The land and walkways were beautiful. If there weren’t so many empty cages, I would have given 5 stars. Woman at admission desk was very kind and informative!
  • Wonderful staff. Very clean. Cute animals. Great price. A fun little weekday activity
