Look for the AZA logo whenever you visit a zoo or aquarium as your assurance that you are supporting a facility dedicated to providing excellent care for animals, a great experience for you, and a better future for all living things.
I loved it. I have been to the following zoos: LA Zoo, Portland Zoo, Denver Zoo, and now the Boise Zoo. The Boise Zoo is one of the nicest. The zoo itself is beautiful, the animals are exotic and there are plenty of fun photo opportunities to be had. We had a great time. Loved feeding the domestic, super sweet goats.
The exhibits are really well designed for zoo attendees and animals alike. It's smaller than many other zoos I've been to, but it's very clean and there's plenty to do and see for both kids and adults. It wasn't very busy either!
