Greensboro Science Center Zoo Expansion
The Greensboro Science Center’s growing membership and foot traffi c led to the need for more exhibits, species and space at their popular zoo. Walking trails at the zoo stop at the Maned Wolf exhibit requiring visitors to turn around and go back the way they came. This 11-acre expansion will contine the walking trail and create a loop along this outdoor addition called “Revolution Ridge.” New species will populate climate-appropriate sections of a natural ridge going down to a pond with water features. The species include pygmy hippos, okapi, cassowaries, Chilean fl amingoes, and new species of cats. An amphitheater, food truck area, and interpretive exhibits will also add to this festive, familyfriendly destination in Greensboro.
