Experience the diversity of forest habitats.



Temperate forests, such as those found here in the Pacific Northwest, are some of the most vast remaining intact habitats on the planet. Despite the cooler temperatures, an abundantly diverse amount of life teems in these forests. Our Temperate Forest zone features red pandas, Asian cranes and maned wolves in the Wildlife Survival Zone. Also in this area are Chilean flamingos and Temperate Wetlands. Our amazing Bug World hosts the smaller life that crawls around us, and the popular Family Farm is home to mini-cows, sheep, chickens and goats.

Family Farm and Animal Contact Area

Learn about the role farms play in our daily lives and see some of the animals common to a barnyard setting, from cows to donkeys, chickens, goats, sheep and pigs. During our summer hours, you can even get the opportunity to touch a gentle sheep or goat.

Bug World

Whether they creep, crawl, fly (or all three!) Bug World contains a fascinating array of the often overlooked life that teems around us. See colorful beetles, hairy tarantulas, stinging scorpions and a host of other creatures and learn about their life cycles and how they contribute to help other animals, including us, survive.
