Pockets of Nature in the Zoo

When you visit the Zoo, look for the very special areas I call "pockets of nature".

A pocket of nature is here.

These are the outdoor areas where your view of the Zooballoon, the swan boats, the play areas, the face-painting stands, and all the other amusements is blocked, and where there are no physical barriers between you and the animals, so you can stand or sit and sense only the beauty of Nature around you.

Some have always been there, but were somewhat obscured for a while. Others are new, appearing without much fanfare here and there in the Zoo.

These areas are small, so you have to be very observant to notice them. But, once you do, if you stay in them a while, and look and listen, you will know what makes them special.

My favorite pocket of nature is here.
