Tropics

Pardon Our Progress: Jungle Exhibit is Closed

Jungle will reopen Memorial Day of 2015. 

The next time you’re at the Zoo, you might notice that there’s a little something going on at the Jungle! The Jungle is getting a facelift, or to be more exact, a roof “lift”! The roof that shelters the building is one that went on the building in the early 90’s. Though it has weathered many storms and still looks pretty good, it’s time for an upgrade.

Go on a Tropics Trek

As you trek through the Tropics you have the opportunity to encounter several wonderful species of mammals, fish, reptiles and birds from tropical areas around the world

Bird Watching

Take your time, sit and watch as the birds fly from perch to perch stopping once in a while to refuel at the various bird feeders.
