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 and 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 9 endangered species
  • Its facilities extended over 6 acres
  • It operates a veterinary clinic
  • It is one of 232 zoos in the U.S. accredited by the AZA (Associations of Zoos and Aquariums)
