COX Nature Exchange
The exchange uses an interactive approach of hands-on learning, research and one-on-one interactions with zoo staff and volunteers. By allowing our guests to see and touch the wonders found in nature, we are able to teach the importance of understanding and respecting all things in the world around us.
