Penguin Point to open May 23rd!

Penguin Point to open May 23rd!

Members’ Preview on May 21st, 5:30 – 7:30 p.m.
(Invitations to follow)

The National Aviary’s newest exhibit, Penguin Point, is well under construction. The great big hole for the penguin’s pool has been dug and the Life Support System that helps to keep the penguin swimming pool clean is being installed. We have word from multiple zoos that they have hatched out penguin chicks who will be moving to Pittsburgh to join Stanley, Elvis, Patrick, Simon and Sidney closer to the time when the exhibit will open. In the coming weeks, the concrete for the swimming pool will be poured, the acrylic underwater viewing panels will be installed, and the rock work will be sculpted.
