We are not Puffin Around at Hemker Park & Zoo

We are not Puffin Around at Hemker Park & Zoo! Our Atlantic Puffins have landed in their new exhibit partially donated in memory of Earl Mewes.  The Atlantic Puffins have a penguin-like coloring but they do not sport a beak that has lead some to dub puffins as the "sea parrot." Did you know? Puffins cannot take off without a running start! Come learn more about these amazing birds at Hemker Park & Zoo. We are open daily May 1- October 31 10:00 am - 6:00 pm daily.
