Wilderness Trails Zoo

11721 Gera Road
Birch Run, MI 48415

The mission of Wilderness Trails Zoo is to strengthen family bonds and to promote conservation of the natural world.    We strive to reach our goal though:

 - Hands-on and close up experiences with animals, promoting harmony between nature and development through example.
 - Promoting public awareness of conservation issues and to educate how easy it can be to help with knowledge and understanding of animals.
 - Creating new and innovative exhibits with plenty of recreational opportunities.
 - Create an environment in which which employees can use and expand their knowledge of the animal kingdom and share this knowledge with the public in a fun, family friendly atmosphere.

The educational opportunities for “hands-on” animal encounters and the natural surrounding of the zoo have always been regarded as community treasures.  Hundreds of school groups visit the zoo each spring and thousands of families make the zoo a traditional visit for summer vacation.  Area residents appreciate the services that the zoo provides such as job shadowing for their children, volunteer opportunities and interactive animal shows at community events
