Henry’s Ark: By Jeanette
If you are looking for something else to do besides the zoo to get out and see animals you should take a short drive to Henry’s Ark in Prospect, KY (at 7801 Rose Island Road). This is a farm so be prepared to get a little dirty if it has rained recently. It is free, with donations accepted, to feed a variety of animals so make sure you bring lots and lots of carrots. You’ll be greeted by donkeys and emus as you drive in the parking lot. There are zebras, sheep, goats, camels, and deer to name a few animals you’ll see and get to feed. They are closed on Mondays, but open the rest of the week.
Bring bread for the ducks and carrots for all of the other animals! If you want to do something else that same day, you can head up 42 you will be just a bit away from Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve.
