Two Rivers Wildlife Park – Cape Breton

I am going to begin bringing you more “Things to Do, Places to Go” on the Homeschooling in Nova Scotia Blog.  I’m starting with a place near and dear to our hearts here in Cape Breton…

Two Rivers Wildlife Park is a wonderful, educational place to visit.  Children can learn about wild animals by walking through the forest and observing them in large, natural habitats, and also by reading the information posted.  They can even learn the Latin names of the animals, along with names in the local native Micmaq language. There are also farm animals to pet and enjoy, a U-fish pond, and wagon rides. Your children will also enjoy the playground, and you can pack a lunch and enjoy one of the many picnic areas, or go swimming in the river. Special activities are held for things such as Groundhog Day and March Break, and a special New Year’s Celebration is put on for children to participate in at noon on the last day of the year.  In the winter, you can skate, coast, and cross-country ski.

Two Rivers is located in Huntington, on the banks of the Mira River. Something to consider if you live nearby: you can buy a yearly family pass (2 adults, 2 youths) for only $60.  Other Admission Prices:  Adult – $6, Youth/Senior – $4, 4 & under – FREE, Family – $20
