The mission of Discovery Park of America is to inspire children and adults to see beyond.
At Discovery Park of America, we have great educational programs for all ages! Our most popular programs involve all kinds of animals we have on display here at Discovery Park, as well as some that are brought in by other wildlife educators! Our wildlife department has animal programs throughout the year, including weekly fish feedings, snake feedings and turtle touching! Just ask about those when you visit since the times and days vary!
Celebrate National Wildlife Day with a fun Nature Scavenger Hunt outside on the beautiful grounds of Discovery Park of America! This event takes place on Sat., Aug. 31 from 1 – 3 p.m. First, grab a list of riddles and find out what to look for during the hunt. Then, snap a picture of the items you find to prove that you found the right item. After one hour of hunting, we will all meet up and determine a winner! There will be prizes for First, Second and Third place.
This day is also part of the grand opening weekend for our newest traveling exhibit, “Hot Wheels: Race to Win!” There is a cruise in scheduled for Aug. 31, where guests can enjoy seeing old vintage automobiles on display. Free with park admission or membership. You can also hear Christian music throughout the park on this day. Needless to say, we have a lot going on on Aug. 31!
