Discovery Trail

Planted pathways wind through lush gardens, marshes, and scrubland, where red pandas, dingos, otters, prairie dogs, and kangaroos live. Young trailblazers can experience firsthand various types of animal habitats, locomotion, and senses.

What To See and Do

Meet the locals.
Keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife along the trail. Look for a wild heron or bullfrogs in Discovery Marsh, where turtles and ducks also swim.

Romp with river otters.
Dixie and Oogie, a dynamic duo, play in a marsh-like habitat and cool off in a special pool with circulating water.

Try out animal homes.
Shimmy up a spider’s web, burrow through a real prairie dog town, and climb into a giant duck nest.

Point your compass Down Under.
Say “G’day” to western gray kangaroos and wallabies that hop right along the trail, meet our family of Australian dingoes, and meet Big Bird’s wild cousin—the emu!
