Zoo Horticulture promotes local plant conservation through a variety of research, education and recreational programs that are in place at the Zoo and in the surrounding area.

      On site, the Zoo maintains a collection of rare and endangered plant species that are displayed to educate visitors and enhance the animal exhibits.

      In non-exhibit areas and off-site, the Zoo maintains and protects plants by a) conducting botanical surveys to monitor the health of wild populations; b) by acquiring properties that support rare plant species and rare plant communities; and c) by managing and restoring wild populations of rare plant species and communities, such as the plant community associated with the Upland Pool pictured to the left.
