The building will remain open during the construction. While we are very excited about the coming changes, please know that if you visit, many of our animals have been moved to the exhibit hall to be further away from the active construction. Also, you may experience noise from the construction work being done.
In addition to expanding programming space, guest services will move closer to the entrance. During renovations we will not be able to offer event rentals nor will we be offering our nature themed birthday parties.
Depending on fall field trips and programs that may be taking place, the exhibit hall may temporarily closed to accommodate those groups.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as you may find access to some of the animal exhibits restricted while work is being done.
We can’t wait to be able to make use of the newly renovated spaces to better serve our mission of sharing and educating about nature!
