OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is hoping to help families become active while enjoying nature.

The zoo is hosting a new program, Wild About Health.

The Wild About Health program offers a series of early morning fitness classes designed to spark an interest for being active while surrounded by wildlife.

This November, guests can try different fitness classes designed for all skill levels at the zoo’s Devon Picnic Grounds.

“We’re excited about sharing this new venture with the community,” said Jenna Dodson, OKC Zoo’s manager of events. “This program not only aligns with our commitment to create diverse and quality events but it provides a unique opportunity for people to build an appreciation for wildlife and wild places.”
