Explore and Play

Once you've completed your climb, it's time to get your hands dirty and explore in the nature play zone. Nature Trek Play Partners will be on hand to help your imagination run wild. We'll build forts and nests, jump like a frog, and make animal tracks in the sand. They'll also help you identify local plants and animals that you may spot throughout the exhibit.

The best part? The skills you learn can be replicated when you get home! That means a new relationship with nature after you leave the zoo.

We're planning a few special events throughout the season. Take a look at the schedule below and plan a visit around one (or more!) that suits you. Activities are available from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on the days specified.

July 21 Build Animal Homes
August 12 World Elephant Day - Mud Play!
August 23 Nature Art
September 16 Water Play
September 30 Nature Share
