The new Education & Conservation Center is officially PAID IN FULL! Thanks to the Ruth & William Merkey Foundation for making the final payment on their 3 year pledge for this building early, we were able to pay off our debt ahead of schedule!
We are thankful to everyone that supported our fund-raising efforts. The Center has been filled with activity. Students of all ages have walked through the doors to have valuable, hands-on learning experiences and increase their knowledge of the natural world and a variety of conservation issues.
We are proud to share this new facility with our valued zoo guests, and confident that we have already made a difference and sparked a new appreciation for wildlife in the hearts of many.
