WHAT CAN YOU DO AT THE ZOO WHEN IT IS WINTER?
ZOOMONTANA is a collection of animals whose natural homes are in the northern latitudes where they experience both warm and cold weather. You can see how our animals keep warm and enjoy the winter climate as you visit the exhibits.
DID YOU KNOW THAT OUR ZOO IS ALSO A BOTANICAL GARDEN? There are a number of trees and shrubs that are not native to our area, but grow in this same kind of climate, just as some of our animals do. In the winter when the trees are bare and the grass is covered with snow, you can still see some of the plant features that let you identify what they are.
