Things to Do
- The Zoo's Wild Florida exhibit offer an amazing experience to really make you feel close to the Florida wetlands. Get into one of their kayaks and on a guided tour explore their 22 acres of restored wetlands. Elsewhere in the exhibit see alligators that can grow to as long as 13 feet, wolves, foxes, bald eagles, bob—cats and hawks.
- One of the Zoo's educational programs is the Zoo Tots and Toddlers program. As part of this series children between the ages of 2-4 are treated to a new topic every month that is based around the animals in the Zoo. It teaches them about nature and how to respect the beauty of the world around them.
