Construction Project Begins August 22 

Construction begins August 22 on the replacement of a very old sewer line that runs underground through sections of the Zoo Sanctuary. Over the course of the project, some of the animals will be off-exhibit as they’re relocated to temporary quarters to protect them from the noise and dust from the construction. However, the majority of the animals will remain in their usual exhibits, and many are more active with the cooler weather. While the construction project takes place, the Zoo Sanctuary is offering a special discounted admission rate of $3 per person (ages under 2 years are free) Thank you for your patience.
