Birdland

Birdland

Kansas CIty, MO

EAI developed an interpretive playground for children as an integral part of the Australian Exhibit at the Kansas City Zoological Gardens. Nestled within the woodlands, this colorful oasis is next to two aviaries that house many colorful birds indigenous to the Australian continent, such as the Plumed Whistling Duck and the Wompoo Fruit Dove. EAI embraces the concept of “embodied learning.” We learn with our whole bodies, a fact none are more familiar with than those who work with children. EAI applies embodied learning in all exhibits that we create for children and families, and also employ it in grown-up venues whenever possible. Birdland has become a zoo favorite for kids and families across the region.
