Salt Creek Wilderness
Want to get away and relax a bit from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the zoo? Then you might want to check out Salt Creek Wilderness. Take a relaxing stroll as you immerse yourself in species of plants and animals native to Illinois.
A number of bird species make this spot a migratory resting spot, and others make this their home all year round. Be sure to keep an eye out for our two trumpeter swans that produce eggs here each year on Indian Lake.
