A Gift From Joan Kroc

On March 26, 1988, Tiger River, the Kroc Family Tropical Rainforest exhibit, opened at the San Diego Zoo.  It was funded in large part by a personal gift from Joan Kroc.

The Zoo has grown and changed a lot since 1988.  The Kroc exhibit is still there, sort of.  You can find this sign sort of hidden away in the Lost Forest, if you are walking uphill, which most Zoo patrons don't.

The Zoo's new exhibits are always fantastic.   However, though you have to move with the times, it is nice to have a little piece of the past sometimes.

Thanks Joan!
