Responding to our request to meet in the 17 acres to discuss the Chickasaw Bluffs exhibit, the Zoo has given us an answer:


However, since they've agreed that the 17 acres is a part of Overton Park's old-growth forest, both in conversations and on their website, a conservation easement should be a no-brainer for them, for us, for the City of Memphis.

In fact, their unveiling of the Chickasaw Bluffs exhibit plans for the City Council would be an excellent time to pitch the easement.
