The RainForest at Cleveland Metroparks Zoo is more than 28 years old. Crews have been working for several months to replace the dome that is an iconic feature for the building that shelter 10,000 plants and 600 animals.
A new dome will use state-of-the-art technology to improve lighting, energy efficiency and animal habitats in The RainForest when work is complete this fall. On August 18, a new dome was lifted onto the building roof by the largest crane in Ohio.
