The Utica Zoo's goal is to officially open the Welcome Center sometime this Spring, the earlier the better. Like many construction projects, there are factors that ultimately delay the contractor's progress. But judging by the latest updates, they are closer to the finish line then we thought.

Every single month the zoo has posted progress photos on their Facebook page. They are extremely excited to see the project coming together, and even more excited for when it will finally be open to the public.
