Children are fascinated by the natural world, especially by animals. By providing them with a fun setting in which they can learn about global biodiversity, we can create lifelong ambassadors for the long-term health of all species on our planet.
The design for Nature's Wild Backyard is situated at the intersection of environmental stewardship and a child's thirst for knowledge and wonder. It will embrace interactive play and discovery, immersing kids in a unique environment which will allow them to experience the world in the same manner as the animals that inhabit it: Under, Between, On and Above.
Completion of Nature's Wild Backyard will establish the Edmonton Valley Zoo as a worldwide leader in its field, demonstrating an ongoing commitment to animal welfare, education, and conservation.
We invite you to join us creating a vibrant new zoo that will inspire new generations of ambassadors who care about and are committed to preserving our one and only planet.
