KIOSK OF THE AMERICAS
This kiosk was built
in 1985 as part of the South
American boardwalk at John Ball Zoo. In 1999 we
renovated the look with the addition of the Maya
inspired relief panel at the top and the interpretive
graphics in the six lower panels. Each panel deals
with some aspect of the cultural history of the
Americas as well as the natural history.
In the background
is an "expedition tent" (Camp
Rio) which we also designed and built to further
add to the atmosphere and act as an educational
opportunity for staff and volunteers.
