The EdVenture Lodge education centre, located in the Entry Plaza, includes interpretive classrooms and multi-purpose spaces.

Environmental Features

In line with the City of Edmonton's vision to build smarter with sustainable principles in mind, the Zoo's new plaza buildings take advantage of natural light and air ventilation, and feature green technologies that leave a small ecological footprint on the natural systems and wild places that our zoo is working hard to conserve.
