Because You Live Here!

EARTH Discovery Center

at Southwicks Zoo

Our home base, the EARTH Ltd. Discovery Center, is located in Southwick’s Zoo in Mendon, MA. This is where we house and care for our education animals and perform live presentations for zoo visitors. Visitors are also welcome to come inside the building to get a closer look at our animals and to speak with our staff and interns.

Memberships with EARTH Limited can also be purchased at the Discovery Center.

If you have any questions about memberships, ZooMobiles, education programs, or anything else EARTH Ltd. related, you can call the Discovery Center at 1-800-258-9182 ext 208.

Educational Presentations

Zoo visitors can view and learn more about our animal ambassadors during live educational programs at the EARTH Discovery Center stage and Bird Show Arena in Southwick’s Zoo.

In addition to shows and presentations, we also offer keeper talks. These informal presentations provide visitors the opportunity to learn more about the care of certain animals from the keepers.

For current presentation and keeper talk schedules, visit Southwick’s Zoo’s website.

New EARTH Discovery Center

Today the EARTH Ltd. Discovery Center, which is located in Southwick’s Zoo, serves as our home base. As we continue to grow we are proud to announce our plans to build a brand new EARTH Ltd. Discovery Center adjacent to Southwick’s Zoo. The new, multi-level center will include an increased overall footprint, interactive areas for presentations and animal encounters. This will allow us to expand our educational and outreach programs. We will also offer a tranquil area with a Koi Pond and courtyard. Expanded plans will include an interactive experience which will transport visitors to key parts of the world where there is a vivid interface between human communities and wildlife. 

Our capital campaign is in full swing. But our goals are lofty, and we need your help. We will continue to hold fundraising events throughout the upcoming years such as our EARTH memberships, annual golf tournament, Rhino’s for Wino’s (September 29th, 2023),  2024 our EARTH Bash on June 21st, and more. By supporting these events you help support our day to day operations, as well as the new center’s capital campaign. To donate and support our capital campaign visit
