WHAT'S NEW AND COMING TO THE POCATELLO ZOO?
FROM AN AWESOME GRIZZLY BEAR EXHIBIT TO A NEW VISITOR ENTRANCE

The new and amazing Grizzly Bear Exhibit helped set new attendance records for Zoo visitors! Come visit and experience it. Hundreds have made return trips with their families to sit in the viewing gallery and observe all the increased natural activity that Stripes, the female grizzly, is exhibiting. She spends her days in this fantastic natural exhibit, hunting for food and treats hidden by her zoo keepers, trying to catch the live trout living in the pond below the cascading stream, and contentedly napping. She also roams her new half acre of trees, grass, and lava boulders with the end of the Portneuf Valley and Scout Mountain providing the backdrop for everyone watching her.





CONSIDER MAKING A GIFT TO COMPLETE THE NEW ENTRANCE

The current project for modernizing the Pocatello Zoo is a new Zoo Entrance. Colored renderings have been completed and work will commence on the designs for construction of the entrance. It will include a ticket booth area, walk in gift shop, snack bar, and public restrooms. The project will also address the steep walkway to the entrance. Inside the entrance will be a wide plaza, where people will be able to sit and rest at a picnic table and enjoy something to eat. Visitors will be able to stay longer and have access to more of the amenities they need to better enjoy the Zoo. Phase 1 will begin with construction of the restrooms.

YOUR CONTRIBUTION WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE!
