1980’s

  • 1983 – Developed The Cricket Machine, a coin-operated behavioral enrichment device. Allowed visitors to gain a better understanding of predator-prey relationships.
  • 1985 – A tornado damaged much of our perimeter fence and corn-crib-style cages, which had been used for mammals and birds. We subsequently developed those areas into outdoor reptile enclosures.
  • 1986 – Accredited by the Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA), formerly the American Zoo and Aquarium Association.
  • 1989 – Constructed the Program Center with seating for over 150 guests.
