PUBLIC MEETING ABOUT REDWOOD CANOPY WALK PROJECT

The City of Eureka and the Sequoia Park Zoo Foundation invite the community to a public meeting to learn more about our upcoming Redwood Canopy Walk project. We hope you will join us Sunday, January 27th, 2019 from 2:00 PM–4:00 PM at the Wharfinger Building for a presentation on this innovative project that will be opening at the Sequoia Park Zoo in 2020. Short presentations from our design collaborators Synergo and Tree Solutions Inc. will provide the audience with some of the conceptual planning done thus far, as well as safety and technical considerations, safeguards for forest health, and descriptions of the visitor experience.

Project managers from Greenway Partners are leading the Design Build team and will facilitate this meeting by engaging attendees in thinking about this unique coming attraction. City and Zoo officials will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss next steps. The design team will take input from this meeting into the official concept design work starting the following day. “We are gearing up with a fantastic team assembled from local experts and experienced canopy builders from Oregon and Washington to get this project underway. We can’t wait to share this information with the community and get the excitement buzz going,” said Gretchen Ziegler, Zoo Director. “We are thankful for financial support provided by the Eureka, Humboldt and Arcata Lodging Alliances which helped move this project into reality.”

Please join us and provide your much-needed input:
