Marvel at the wonders of North America's wildlife treasures on American Trail, where all of the residents are busy and fun! Gray wolves stalk about their enclosure, beavers work hard on their dam, and playful otters make splashes in their pool. Admire lush flora native to North America, as a majestic eagle keeps watch over the valley, and seals and sea lions amaze you with their sleek lines and graceful moves. At the outdoor amphitheater, wow your guests with an aquatic demo given by one of the keepers on the trail, or entertain to the backdrop of the exhibit's underwater viewing areas.
