In a Nutshell

Deer roam freely and eat food from visitors' hands in a sprawling park, which also houses a petting zoo, a grizzly bear, and a mountain lion

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Sep 15, 2013. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person. Limit 1 per visit. Children must be accompanied by a guardian. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Wildlife parks make it possible for people to see how animals interact with their environments and for animals to see how people interact with their weird, hairless babies. Witness the wonders of nature with this Groupon.

The Deal

  • $16 for all-day admission for four (up to a $32 value)

The park introduces visitors to both free-roaming animals and ones in enclosures. Deer wander the yard and eat out of visitors’ hands (food is an additional $1.50 per bag), while goats, rabbits, and other creatures interact with people in the petting area. Weather permitting, children can ride ponies for $3 per person.

Fawn-Doe-Rosa Wildlife Educational Park

Ever since the Fawn-Doe-Rosa Wildlife Educational Park's opening in 1963, the deer inside have had terrible manners—no matter how many times they've eaten out of a visitor's hand, they refuse to say "thank you." Most people don't hold it against them, though. They're too busy wandering the woodland yard, petting its free-roaming occupants and keeping an eye out for other species. Aside from deer, the park houses elk, ducks, farmyard animals, and even predators in separate enclosures, including a grizzly bear and a mountain lion.

Many of these animals were hand-raised by the park's owners, who work with conservation organizations, rehabilitation experts, and the USDA to ensure the critters' comfort. By allowing visitors to get up close to their friendly, four-legged residents, they hope to make each trip a learning experience, one that connects humans with nature and sparks an interest in its preservation. They also host group tours that touch on wildlife facts, as well as pony rides for children training for a 21st-century revival of the Pony Express mail service.
