Mesker Park Zoo & Botanic Garden has to temporarily close the Amazonia exhibit for the next several weeks while they complete a major painting project.

As you can imagine, painting the Amazonia exhibit is no small task. Not only because of the size of the building, but also because of all the inhabitants. There are all the animals and the plant life to keep in mind. Mesker Park Zoo employees have done a great job relocating the animals and ensuring the plants are protected during this project.

If you plan on visiting the zoo, just know that there will be one less place to get out of the elements. The other indoor areas of the zoo are still open daily.
