    About the Project:

    The new Forest Trailhead experience will build on Woodland Park Zoo’s global conservation work, motivate guests to act to conserve forest habitats, and feature vulnerable and endangered animals representing forests of the world, including tree kangaroos. Much-adored red pandas, colorful birds and fascinating reptiles and invertebrates will also make their home in the new forest. Click here to learn more about the project. 

    Sellen’s team is partnering with the Woodland Park Zoo and LMN Architects for the construction of the Forest Trailhead project, set to begin in May 2024.
