CALIFORNIA TRAIL: A Brief History

(Roll over a year to see more)

{ Discover Your Nature on California Trail }

Oakland Zoo is excited to break ground on a transformational project that will further our commitments to animal care, education, and conservation. California Trail is a new planned exhibit that will be constructed adjacent to the existing Zoo in Knowland Park. You’ll travel to the new exhibit on-board an ADA-accessible (and stroller-friendly) electric gondola system with panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay Area as you look down on majestic bison and tule elk.

 

California Trail provides a chance to interpret one of the great stories of change in California and emphasizes the role of humans in shaping the ecology of the San Francisco Bay Area. Through live native animal and plant exhibits, the Zoo will highlight the delicate balance between plants, animals, and humans – and the impact of change on all three. From casual visitors to serious students and scientists – all can join in the effort to nurture and create a better California.
