Project Overview

As a core to Como’s mission on education, updating the aging interpretive signage and adding interactive and technology based interpretive and hands-on experiences is important. The cost to develop, design and produce these items is needed for African Hoofstock, Large Cats and the Japanese Gardens. The displays will demonstrate Como Zoo’s commitment to world-wide conservation measures.
