The Tree habitat in the Maryland Wilderness area is closed for renovation until spring. The reptiles and amphibians inside the tree, such as wood turtles and Eastern tiger salamanders, will not be viewable during this time. The giant tree slide can still be accessed by the stairs outside of the tree but may be closed at some times.
Winter has not slowed us down! Progress on the lion, giraffe and elephant habitat renovations continue and in the update below you’ll start to see some of the most exciting features of the new spaces (like floor to ceiling glass viewing windows for lions and new places to get eye to eye with elephants) taking shape.
Exciting progress is being made at the lion habitat. The glass for the new viewing windows has now been installed!
