Zoo Plant Life
The Zoo is a great place to see animals – but it’s also a botanical garden with a diverse array of plants from all over the world. From native Northwest to spiky succulents, humming pollinator gardens and exotic flowers, our plant life is stunning – plus it recreates habitats for our animals, and even provides them with leafy enrichment.
From Northwest to Carnivorous
