Tall Wonders Giraffe Exhibit Grand Opening
February 11, 2010 at 11:30 am

Exactly one year from the February 2009 groundbreaking for Tall Wonders, the Sacramento Zoo is proud to announce the ribbon-cutting celebration event on February 11, 2010 at 11:30 am.  The grand opening celebration continues President’s Day weekend for all Zoo visitors.

Everyone can visit the Zoo Friday, February 12 to Monday, February 15, and see Val, Skye & Goody in their new home. For the very first time, visitors will be eye to eye with the stately residents on the 1,100 square foot raised deck. The elevated platform also provides a magnificent view into the neighboring zebra and ostrich area.

The state-of-the-art block barn (yes, it’s heated!) provides warm nights for the three giraffes, while the expanded grounds allow for leisurely giraffe-size strolls during the day.

With the finishing touches almost completed, we are grateful for the community’s support and commitment to the project. We are just dollars away from reaching the $2 million goal. The Sacramento Zoological Society is 100% committed to providing the best possible care and facilities for the Zoo’s animals. With continued community support, we will improve and enrich the Zoo for future generations.
