What are the campaign priorities?
The total project cost of $8.5 million will be covered by $6.9 million from an Onondaga County bond issue and county green initiatives. The Friends of the Zoo's commitment to raise private support for these projects was instrumental in securing the multi-million dollar bond commitment from the County Legislature in Fall 2007.
