Zoomazium: Press Week

Seattle-area readers, fire up your Tivos and start watching the evening news! The Zookids are spending the week showing off the Zoomazium for the press in anticipation of the grand opening of the facility next Friday (Thursday if you're a Zoo member). Kate appeared in front of KOMO 4's cameras last night, though I didn't see any coverage of the Zoomazium actually make the news, and she'll be at the zoo again Thursday.

It's been very exciting to see this project come together. I took some photos of the mostly completed exhibits and play areas.

Quite a contrast from the in-progress tour we had back in March!

Katherine has one last donor event next Wednesday night, and I'm letting her skip school for the Grand Opening on Friday. I might even let her come on next Thursday if I can justify letting her skip school two days in a row. Mostly it's been great seeing all the ideas the kids had come to fruition. This has been a great project to be associated with and I think it's going to be a fantastic draw for the zoo. The Nature Exchange idea is inspired, the ability to project live webcams of animals (such as the nesting BC eagles that were such a hit last month) or other zoo exhibits is really cool, the plan to have live animals appearing, it's been downright exciting for the kids and the families who have been involved and we can't wait to start sharing it with the public!
