Lehigh Valley Zoo entrance sign destroyed by winter storm

Proposed design in works for new sign

N. WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. - The Lehigh Valley Zoo had plans to relocate and redesign its entrance to be ADA accessible by the end of 2018, but Mother Nature seems to have had other plans.

The winter storm on March 2 severely damaged the Lehigh Valley Zoo's entrance sign, officials from the zoo said, putting a damper on the zoo's plans and finances. 

However, it's given the zoo an opportunity to share its long-term goal.

The zoo has plans to relocate its entrance to the west side of the zoo, as land is flatter and more accessible for those with wheelchairs, canes and strollers. The space for the proposed entrance also has room for a facility for charging and storing mobile scooters. 

Donations are being accepted to help fund the redesigned entrance. Its estimated cost is $75,000. If you would like to help, call Doreen Carl at 610-799-4171 ext. 232 or email at dcarl@lvzoo.org.
