Most People Don’t Know About ZooMontana In Billings
Montana is a vast and magnificent state, and it happens to be most famous for its natural wonders. While places like Glacier National Park and Flathead Lake are truly spectacular, we shouldn’t forget our other unique attractions, like Zoo Montana in Billings. If you’ve never been, make it a point to visit as soon as you can.
ZooMontana is located in Billings - Montana's largest city.
This zoological and botanical garden is dedicated to the conservation of wildlife through education and observation.
The zoo is home to over 100 animals of 51 different species.
That's pretty impressive for a zoo of its size!
ZooMontana was incorporated and established as a non-profit organization in 1984, and in 1995, it moved to the 70-acre complex it's in today.
As the only zoological garden within a 500-mile radius, it's safe to say this place is pretty special. Most of the animals here are rescues, as ZooMontana believes in quality over quantity.
ZooMontana continues to grow at an incredible rate, adding more and more projects each year.
In addition to the impressive array of animals, guests can learn about Yellowstone ecosystem fauna and other biological subjects. Needless to say, this is a popular place for field trips during the school year.
ZooMontana is open all winter, and you won't want to miss ZooLights during the holiday season...
... but you'll find plenty of warm weather events here as well.
From outdoor movies and markets to the annual Ales for Trails charity event, it seems as if ZooMontana is always hosting a party.
ZooMontana is open daily (except for major holidays like Christmas Day), although hours vary by season. Check the website for up-to-date hours.
Admission is $9 for adults and $6 for children (children 2 and under get in for free). Parking is complimentary, so you'll have plenty of cash to spend at the gift shop!
