Explore the Wild! is a nature play area designed to inspire children of all ages to use their imagination and discover the natural world around them.   In this play area, kids can: • Climb on a naturalistic rock wall • Build with loose tree branches • Create sculptures with sand • Dig in mud pits   The Houston Zoo is on a mission to connect communities with animals, inspiring action to save wildlife. We take nature play seriously, because playing in nature leads to protecting nature.
