Vote Yes on Question 7
This November voters of this wonderful state have the chance to support an investment in clean water, open space and parks and recreational facilities by voting yes on Question 7. This referendum includes $15 million for improvements at the Zoo. Funding will allow us to replace the old Tropical America exhibit with a new Rainforest building, build a new education center, and transform the current education building into a state-of-the-art reptile house.
As the Zoo continues to build, expand and improve, we need your support to ensure that your zoo remains a world class facility. On November 4th, please vote yes on 7!
