Let’s Build this Town!
The campaign to bring Prairie Dogs to the Zoo is well underway. We have already raised 2/3 of the $658,000 necessary to construct the all new exhibit which will include:
- a species appropriate habitat complete with underground barriers to contain this burrowing species, large mounds, rockwork and native grasses
- public viewing areas including a sheltered space as well as clear wall so guests from the Zoo Train can see inside the exhibit.
- educational displays to allow people to understand the plight facing this imperiled species and how they can help
