LINCOLN – Today, Governor Pete Ricketts joined the Lincoln Children’s Zoo to announce their plans for a $16 million expansion, which will more than double the size of the zoo.
“The expansion of the Lincoln Children’s Zoo will take one of Nebraska's premier attractions to the next level and help grow our state,” said Governor Ricketts. “With the zoo more than doubling in size, they will be able to offer more educational opportunities and will continue to be a key component to creating the quality of life that makes Nebraska a great place to live, work, and raise a family for generations to come."
