Turn right from the Main Entrance and follow a gentle stream to experience the diversity of native North American species. You’ll hear the chirps, calls and whistles of our waterfowl before you spot the regal black-necked swans, impressive American white pelicans, and flamboyant roseate spoonbills. As the creek flows downhill, a magnificent view of an American prairie opens before you. Walk along the boardwalk among iconic species like the red fox, playful river otters, and the symbol of our country, the bald eagle. Our fantastic felines include bobcats, cougars, and a pair of majestic tigers that have been guest favorites for over ten years. Our private river borders a lush open glade where white-tailed deer roam among imposing bison. The Wild Bird Walkabout invites you to mingle with a flock of friendly birds. Next door is one of our important conservation programs: the breeding center for the Texas Horned Lizard. Keep following the path as it meanders along the prairie to the bear lair and the pond where alligators hide.
