Nature Trek

Nature Trek is our newest Total Experience exhibit at the Bronx Zoo. Climb and crawl to new heights or explore the environment around you* for a fresh perspective on nature.

Trek and Climb

We've built a village in the trees perfect for kids*, or kids at heart, to explore. Cross wavy bridges and crawl through elevated tunnels. Take in the view from a human-sized bird nest and balance on wiggly surfaces. The bridges, walkways, and towers are safe, fully netted, and offer accessible routes. Which means you can explore the world from a fresh point of view.

Explore and Play

Get your hands dirty and explore in the nature play zone. We'll splash in water, build forts and nests, and draw the nature around you with chalk. They'll also help you identify local plants and animals that you may spot throughout the exhibit. Then use your new skills to enjoy nature at home!
