BALD EAGLE EXHIBIT
Friday, May 25, 2018 at 4:00 pm
The Mill Mountain Zoo will be opening its Bald eagle exhibit tomorrow at 4:00 pm.
Please join us at the ribbon cutting for this exhibit as we continue to advance the Virginia Wild concept here at the Zoo that focuses on new exhibits and attractions with species native to the Blue Ridge
This exhibit was funded through the generosity of the Roanoke Women’s Foundation, which provided the Zoo with a $46,800 grant to renovate exhibits and expand our education program.
Immediate priorities for the Zoo include the renovation of the Bald eagle and Snow leopard exhibits as part of our expanded education program.
The Zoo hosts 160 animals and currently attracts 50,000 regional and out of state visitors every year. It also serves an additional 15,000 school children each year on site and through outreach activities.
