The Louisville Zoo will hold its grand opening of the newly renovated Amur tiger exhibit, the Alice S. Etscorn Tiger Tundra, at 10:30 a.m. Monday, June 2.
The renovation is designed to allow special access to visitors, who can view the tigers up close and watch them being trained, without a special behind-the-scenes tour.
It is an integral part of the zoo’s Glacier Run project, a 4.3-acre outdoor exhibit based on the theme of an old gold-mining town bordered by a glacier, scheduled to open in 2009.
The Louisville Zoo is located at 1100 Trevilian Way.
