As an integral part of our commitment to conservation, Happy Hollow offers engaging experiences to educate the community about wildlife. The Education team encourages people of all ages to embrace their wild side with visits to area schools, as well as on- site classes, camps and special events. Fascinating encounters with animal ambassadors help visitors feel more connected to animals, and motivate them to take action to protect the natural world.
Located across from the Keep-Around Carousel is the Zoo on the Hill and Double-H Ranch, featuring a combination of animal exhibits, including giant anteaters and red ruffed lemurs, as well chickens and domesticated animals.
Follow the crooked bamboo pathway down into the hollow and visit with some of the most amazing animals in the world. Where else in San José can you get up close to a stunning jaguar, lemur, meerkat or American alligator? Happy Hollow is dedicated to helping save species and preserve wildlife for future generations by participating in Species Survival Plan programs through the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
