In 2019, Zoo Boise unveiled its 2.5-acre, $8.9 million expansion, that features a partnership with Gorongosa National Park in Africa. The Gorongosa expansion includes wild African dogs, baboons, Nile crocodiles, hyenas and much more. Proceeds from each zoo admission goes into a conservation fund supporting endangered species. More than $2 million has been donated to conservation to date.

Zoo Boise is available for private celebrations. Add-ons for events can include animal presentations or zookeeper chats, conservation cruises in the lagoon to the African Plains exhibit, giraffe encounters and unlimited carousel rides. 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Executive Hotels and Resorts has launched Seaside, a new waterfront property located in The Shipyards District of Lower Lonsdale (Lolo), which is North Vancouver’s historic arts and dining neighborhood. The boutique property features 71 guest rooms and suites with views of the Pacific Ocean and North Shore mountains. The architecture firm ZGF worked in collaboration with Executive Hotels’ in-house design team to bring the spirit of the outside indoors, building upon the revival of Wallace Shipyards.
