Last week we visited the National Aviary and saw the remodel of the Tropical Rain Forest Exhibit. I first time i visited the Aviary was in the 1970’s but since returning to Pittsburgh we have become members and attend frequently. I have never seen the waterfall working in the Tropical Rainforest and the change in the exhibit was astounding. It now sounded and looked like a tropical jungle!
They also replaced all the 1952 plate glass with special LEED certified glass and the difference in light is transformative. The staff and birds seem to like it as much as the visitors. Well done Pittsburgh!
