Como Park Zoo and Conservatory
1225 Estabrook Dr
St. Paul, MN 55103

Como Park Zoo & Conservatory is one of the most visited cultural destinations in Minnesota.  What began as a donation of three deer in 1897, Como has seen the growth and advancement in animal care and welfare over the decades.  

Much of the success of the Como Zoo is based on keeping their “tenants” happy and visitors entertained and safe. Are we so different? We may deal with unruly tenants the same way that the zookeepers deal with mad gorillas! Or maybe not!  However we are both committed to tenant satisfaction!  How do we provide a great environment for tenants and what are the biggest issues facing managing both facilities? With HVAC System issues – how do we make sure things aren’t too hot or too cold? With lighting, what are specialized needs vs. specialized programming like daylighting and how can we make sure our tenants and visitors are secure?

Hear from Como’s Director, Michelle Furrer and Senior Zoo Keeper, Allison Jungheim on how they care for their facility and its residents, and what improvements are on the horizon including plans for its most famous resident Sparky.

BOMA Board Chair, Julie Bauch will guide us through an entertaining program where we can compare notes with property managers of a whole different animal. You never know, you might learn a thing or two – because it truly is a Zoo out there!

One hour of CEU has been APPROVED!
