Binder Park Zoo…One of America’s Best Zoos Right in Your Own Backyard!
Binder Park Zoo is located outside of Battle Creek, Michigan, on 433 acres of natural forests and wetlands. In the past 33 years, we have grown to be one of the leading cultural attractions in the region. Binder Park Zoo was created on the model of an entrepreneurial self-supporting nonprofit organization, and is managed by a zoological society board of directors.
In addition to providing an entertaining and educational experience for our visitors, Binder Park Zoo plays a critical role in wildlife conservation, at home and around the world. Zoos contribute to conservation in four primary ways: research, education, preservation of genetic diversity, and direct support of wild populations and their habitat.
Join us in an exploration of the wonders of wildlife and conservation through interactive age appropriate programming. We are dedicated to creating experiences that foster a sense of wonder, share knowledge, and advocate active involvement with wildlife and wild places. Programs available for groups and individuals ages 18 months and up.
