    About the Project:

    We’re excited to announce that the Woodland Park Zoo Forests For All project has begun. Sellen’s Special Projects team is partnering with the Woodland Park Zoo and LMN Architects for the construction of the Forests for All exhibit, set to begin in April 2024. The exhibit, targeting LEED Gold, will add to the zoo’s global conservation programming and empower visitors to learn more about the at-risk animal populations within our region and beyond. Animals such as the Matschie’s Tree Kangaroo and Red Panda will inhabit the new space, both species that are extremely vulnerable to rising temperatures and the ongoing decline of biodiversity on our planet. This exhibit will present an important educational impact on the region and help our community make lasting lifestyle changes to slow the effects of climate change on the natural environments around us. 

    Updates will be posted on a biweekly basis and as needed to communicate upcoming activities and any associated impacts to surrounding streets and sidewalks.
