"A Crevice Garden Experience"

 The Plant Select Garden  is located on the main trail approaching the eagle exhibit and on the left before crossing Canyon Creek. It welcomes the visitors to the animal section of ZooMontana with both a natural and native feel. The garden is undergoing a transformation as part of the "Plant Select" program. There's much anticipation about this crevice garden as it will give the zoo some visual excitement this growing season ! Stay tuned for a Spring update.
