Their opinions will be sought on what kind of new animal habitats the Zoo should offer, what new experiences the Zoo should provide and what other amenities should be added.

The Zoo's Education Department will lead a series of round table assessments with the Task Force that will include creative "play" sessions to uncover creative thought. Such sessions are used in both adult and child settings to encourage unique thought and creative thinking.
