 SCHOOL GROUPS WELCOME

Our Objective here at Skunkie Acres, Inc. is to educate Children about animals here in our State of Florida and also about animals from around the world.  Children receive hands on educations about animals and lessons on the importance of animals to our world.


Our Goal is to interest the School System in affordable and educational field trips right here in Northern Florida.  We have something for all ages from Horseback Riding to a  Petting Farms and much much more.

We have a beautiful picnic area with seating to rest or to enjoy your lunch upon.  We also have ample parking and can handle bus parking.

Each of our field trips will have a guided tour by a professional guide and animal handler with questions and answers.  Flyers will be presented to all children and chaperones.   There is a minimum of 1 Chaperone for every 10 Children. Our intentions will be to try to keep the age groups in their selected locations.

Children will also learn the importance of cleanliness when interacting with animals.  We stress the importance of hand washing when handling animals. We have several hand washing/sanitizing stations available throughout our animal areas.

We have specific days for horseshoeing and farriering.  Horseback lessons are available but are not included in our field trips.
