An Environmental Center where learning will come naturally!
The new William E. Morgan Environmental Center will be built on the site of the current, aging Visitor's Center. The zoo desperately needs to update that facility and create a space that will serve as an educational and environmental center for the zoo. This new building will house the Zoo's reptile and amphibian collections (snakes, frogs, salamanders, turtles), along with other small animals such as spiders and insects.
We envision a place where thousands of children each year will have the chance to learn about their natural world and inspire a whole new level of environmental awareness.
It will offer an interactive nature lab where visitors can view and experience native and non-native species.
