So many cute kids exploring nature, so little time!

Congratulations, winners!

It's no surprise Pacific Northwest families submit some of the cutest photos of kids outdoors! With more than 85 entries to our June 2016 Kids in the Wild photo contest, it was hard to pick a favorite. We were wild about all of them! But eventually, we had to choose two winners for our amazing prizes from Woodland Park Zoo.

Click through to see which entries, after much deliberation, took second and first place!


Second place: "Sand Race"

"Every year during our annual camping trip to Cape Disappointment, the family has a foot race in the sand. To date, my husband always wins, but each year the kids get faster."

Congratulations to Misty Cato! You've won a Woodland Park Zoo family day pass and $45 gift card.
