So you hear us mention Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville all the time but what are they all about? Animal Adventure Park and its owner, Jordan Patch have been a HUGE supporter of our St. Jude Country Cares for Kids Radiothon and he's a big part of its success every year.

Animal Adventure Park is an interactive and educational animal park with over 100 species and 300 animals calling Harpursville its home. They believe that conservation is made through education and that's why their staff includes (amongst other things) zoologists, animal behaviorists, and biologists.
