     Directions

    Join OCASLA on Saturday, September 15th @ 8:30 am for a 2 hr CEU event that will go behind the scenes at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium with Karen Schenk, RLA. Karen is the Director of Project and Site Design at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium (CZA). Registration is FREE, but there are limited spots and participants MUST register for this event by Thursday, September 13th. A parking pass will be sent by email to give participants access to the Zoo before it opens.  

    The tour will include CZA’s Adventure Cove (under construction), the Polar Frontier (completed in 2010), and Heart of Africa (completed in 2014).  Tour of each region will address the design challenges of site, animal clientele and guest experience as well as address the codes and specialty permitting agencies that zoo’s work with to assure the best regard for the health, safety and welfare of the animals, staff and guests.

    This tour will take place at the zoo prior to its opening, so participants are asked to arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow the group to be scanned in together and allow the tour to start on time. If you are late and the tour has already begun, it is likely you will not be able to join the event.

    If you would like to stay in the zoo after the tour, participants may stay. Any family or friends that would want to meet up with you, will have to pay admission and join after the front gate opens at 9:00 am.
