Preparing for Spring March 8, 2013 Spring is right around the corner, and we’re getting ready for warm weather and more visitors. We’ve been working hard during the colder months to improve the Zoo. Giraffe Ridge and the new and improved Base Camp Café will reopen in the next few weeks. The new 4,500-square-foot Peacock Pavilion will be available for rental starting in April. Africa will open at the end of June.
