Come fly with us in a hands-on, outdoor, nature play experience! Explore the wooded areas of the zoo while learning about local birds and building nests. Program includes a guided walk on secret paths of the zoo and time for open exploration and play in nature. If you'd like to see some animals up-close, make sure to add on an Animal Meet & Greet program
