You don’t have to leave the city to experience life on the farm! This year’s theme focuses on pollinators and highlights the Pollinator Awareness Program at Franklin Park Zoo.


Franklin Park Zoo’s Franklin Farm is home to an array of fascinating animals including Poitou donkeys, an extremely rare breed of donkey and the oldest breed of donkey in France, sheep, goats, Guinea hogs, and much more! Visitors of all ages will also have the opportunity to learn about pollinators and the role bees play in the ecosystem, as well as the importance of preserving this important species. Throughout the day, there will be scheduled zookeeper encounters to learn more about the animals as well as opportunities to meet with the zoo’s education staff to learn more about pollinators and why these creatures play such an important role in healthy ecosystems. Special exhibitors include UMASS Extension and Best Bees.


This year’s Farm Day is made possible by the generous support of the Krupp Foundation.
