Design work is proceeding on a quality of life project endorsed earlier this year by the entire City Council. The Thompson Park Aviary is being redesigned as classroom space needed by the Zoo, and the project will save the distinctive structure that had fallen into poor repair despite recent fundraising drives to preserve it. The Aviary building will be a great addition to an already charming zoo. The construction is expected to start next spring.
