  • You can visit this campus to see their collection of birds of prey, farm animals and various hoofstock. They host community events as well, but their focus on special education and Environmental awareness is the true reason to be impressed by this organization.
  • Each year I take my Kindergarten class for a visit, and each year is a wonderful experience for all!
  • Best school ever. I LOVE IT! So many animals and somethings always happining.
  • I take my 5 year old niece here to see the farm animals and birds of prey. They have a variety of farm animals as well as other types of animals: goats, bunnies, sheep, pigs, ponies, cows, ostriches. Also one amazing bird to see is the largest flying bird, the Andean Condor. This one unfortunately can't fly, nor can the bald eagles housed here. Green Chimneys is their safe haven as they were hurt or maimed in the wild. It is truly a wonderful place to learn about the natural world and to understand how important it is to look after the environment. Green Chimneys was set up as a program for children with emotional, behavioral, social, but I recommend it highly anyone to visit (check for times and days as only open to public on limited basis at weekend)
  • WONDERFUL School!! Has helped my son tremendously!! Jane Weisbrot
