Whether you are looking for an animal to meet up-close, or prefer those safely housed behind glass, you'll find it at Discovery Corner. Slide through a pool surrounded by otters. Follow a butterfly's wandering flight. Pet a rabbit, brush a goat and plot a way to help our environment. You can do it all at the Zoo's most hands-on, interactive exhibits, where one rule holds true: learning is fun!
