Because You Live Here!

The main grounds of Southwick’s Zoo are closed for the 2014 season and will re-open in April 2015. We’re still busy bees here at EARTH though! We continue to care for our animal ambassadors year round at the EARTH Discovery Center, and we still have ZooMobiles and other event set-ups to attend. If you are an educator interested in a ZooMobile give us a call at 1-800-258-1982 ext 8 for more info. Just last week we were at the Nipmuc STEM Career and College Fair.

As you can tell we’re currently updating many areas of our website so check back for more news. We plan on having a design contest coming up for all of you creative types this winter.

While the zoo’s main grounds are closed there are still some fun things going on.

  • The Purple Peacock Gift Shop is open until Christmas. Their Open House Event is coming up November 15 & 16. Check their page for more info on sales and specials. Keep your eyes peeled for their 12 Day of Christmas sales in December. They have some fantastic holiday gift ideas!
  • Weekends in November: The Skyfari will be operating and the zoo is also offering a free petting zoo behind he gift shop.
