EcoTarium Announces Two New Exhibits

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

 

The EcoTarium has announced the public launch of a capital campaign created to move closer to its vision of becoming a national leader in engaging communities with science and nature, and revealed two exhibits which will enhance visitor experiences and educational programming. The announcement was made during the EcoTarium's annual meeting that was held on June 21. 

EcoTarium President Joseph Cox revealed the launch of the $9.1 million third century campaign. 

“This campaign investment represents the museum’s largest capital investment in almost 20 years, with two new major exhibits planned that will create innovative learning environments both indoors and outdoors," said Josephy Cox, EcoTarium president. 

The two new exhibits are:

·         City Science is a first-of-its-kind exhibit where visitors will engage in a comprehensive investigation of urban science, from city animals and neighborhoods, to engineering infrastructure, to larger questions of how we design cities and how they impact our lives.
This dramatic 2,500-square-foot exhibit is funded in part by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Anticipated opening date is December 2016.

·         Wild Cat Station brings mountain lions and other native New England species to the EcoTarium in a spectacular outdoor exhibit. Located at the end of the Wildlife Path, it will transform a large parcel of land, including the former polar bear exhibit, into a strong anchor destination for guests on the EcoTarium campus. Anticipated opening 2018.
