“Animal Protection Program”

Reviewed January 14, 2013

If you have not visited the Holtsville Ecology Site, you have missed one of the most important places of interest on Long Island. A very pleasant staff of employees that take exceptional care of the many injured animals that live at the site. Bring your children/grandchildren to a 'zoo' they can enjoy with a nearby green house and displays. No need to travel far, they are in the center of Long Island in Holtsville. Oh, for grown who enjoy walking, there is a one mile path with gym equipment ready and waiting for you and outdoors! Gotta love the Ecology Site. Be sure and visit the site soon. You can make a money donation to help care for the animals during these difficult economical times.

My kids love it here. The zoo is always a favorite. The animals look well taken care of. The park right next to it is a plus for the kids to run around. We have also participated in the Safety town program here as well as swimming lessons in the pool. All great!

The nature trail is a great place for a walk, and the little zoo is so much fun for the kids (and it's free!). There are also swimming pools and a picnic area. Just a lovely three season place to visit.

I have taken my children and my grandchildren here. There is a petting area where the kids can feed and pet the goats, It's an all day event if you want to make it so. There are so many different parts to the Ecology site that there isn't enough time or room to describe it.There is an outdoor area for the larger animals and different types of birds. An indoor area for smaller displays of butterflies and other winged insets and even a behive to amaze the children. It's free for all. There is also a pool section, there is a pool for the big kids and a wading pool for the little ones. there is a fee for that. There is also a free playground area that has concession area..There is also an Icecream truck parked in the parking lot. There are hiking trails too.During Spring there is free compost. This is a great way to spend an entire day with the kids without going broke. Best deal on Long Island
