Trip Planner:   USA  /  New York State  /  Millbrook  /  Trevor Zoo
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 7 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)

  • One time I saw a baby wallaby escape and get chased by some of the zookeepers. He hopped back into his pen like it was a game he like playing. It was pretty cool. My favorites are the red cute! The zoo is great and the grounds are beautiful. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Honestly so impressed with this place. For 5$, you get to see an awesome zoo. There are wallabies, monkeys, alpacas and more and if you love animals this is a must see! It wasn't crowded or commercialized which I really appreciated. Thank you!
  • Low key, stress free, and perfect for the little kids. Plan on 2 hours max exploring the grounds and watching the animals. Plenty of small exhibits for the little kids to check out. Peaceful too! Plan on checking out the feeding schedule too. The bobcat was hungry today! We will certain plan on returning soon.
  • Beautiful area and great little zoo. Traveled a little to far for such a small zoo haha but it was enjoyable and would go again.
  • Small but enough to pass an afternoon. Employees were very helpful.
