Lemur Island and Tamarin Trail are two summer attractions that provide visitors with barrier-free views of animals in outdoor habitats.
You can watch black and white ruffed lemurs leaping between tree branches from the lookout area near Lemur Island, which is an island in the middle of Bird Lake. There are even a few places for visitors to sit while watching.
And, you can watch golden lion tamarins playing in the trees along the path of Tamarin Trail.
These areas are both examples of what I call "pockets of nature" in the Zoo - places where visitors can position themselves so all they see, hear, and smell are animals and nature.
