"Exploring just right for families"

Alabama Wilds is part of the Birmingham Zoo but offers such an amazing variety of family friendly and educational fun that it deserves a separate listing.  Admission is included with the zoo admission but you can purchase tokens for rides on the carousel, the foam play area, goat pull, animal feed and the train ride ($2.50 per person).  We wandered through the barn to see sheep getting sheared,  poked our heads up into a venomous snake pit and came eye to eye with a real snake---yikes!  We even dug for fossils in a recreated fossil pit.  There's a great wooden bridge and winding path through a beautiful, natural landscape which highlights all sorts of native Alabama plant and animal species.  Our preschooler had so much fun seeing things in a "natural" setting that she felt like she was on a real nature hike.  If you decide to let your little ones play in the foam, please plan to bring a change of clothes and towel.  You'll be glad that you did!
