SALISBURY, Md. - The Salisbury Zoo celebrated the opening of its new visitor center Wednesday morning during a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

The 1,300 square foot building includes a new reptile exhibit and outside space for visitors. 

The visitor center will also serve as a teaching area for students at the zoo.

"The old education building, if you'd been here before, it was a strange, kind of dark, a-frame building. This is a beautiful building, where you can see views to the water. You can actually go around back and see the river on the back side," said Salisbury Mayor Jake Day. 

Ground was first broken on the William E. Morgan Conservation Center back in February 2017. 

The new visitor center is part of the larger "Renew the Zoo" effort, a $3 million dollar capital campaign to provide critical infrastructure for the zoo.
