      This photo shows one of the buildings that will be completed by spring 2017 and it will be called NESt (Nature Exploration Station) and a new Insect Zoo will be part of the structure along with an audiotorium, a backyard habitat garden and an "interactive species-recovery lab" (whatever that is). There is going to be a second building with several classrooms and a café and the two half-finished projects take up a much larger space than I had envisioned. Directly across from the future Education Center is a brand-new Train Station and this part of the zoo will be all new and shiny by 2017. However, the nearest animal exhibit is the Amur Tiger enclosure, which is an old grotto and one of the most badly outdated habitats in the entire zoo. I'm guessing that it will be a major priority in the next zoo Master Plan.
