Rocky Coast Exhibit



The Rocky Coast exhibit, at the Senaca Park Zoo in Rochester, New York, features the latest technology in life support filtration systems for the aquatic environments (salt), and a major holding facility for these threatened species, with special consideration for nesting for Penguins, salt-resistant caging for the salt environments and polar ben maternity and off-exhibit management area. The visitor experience provides various viewing types including an amphitheater for Pinniped shows, underwater viewing for all species at the Underwater Interpretive Gallery, an explorer’s cabin for upper level overlooks and a equal level view over a dry moat for the two main exhibits.

Mr. Lash’s role included exhibit design and project management for CLRR during the design and bidding of this project and coordinating the activities of the multi-discipline design team. The project was completed in 1995.
