The Pacific Seas Aquarium is now open at the Point Defiance Zoo!

The Point Defiance Zoo and Aquarium held its grand opening of the new Pacific Seas Aquarium on September 7th, 2018. GTH Partner John Guadnola, a member of the Board of Directors of the Zoo Society, is the chair of a Society capital campaign to raise money for the new aquarium. The aquarium project started with a bond approved by voters in 2014.  The capital campaign found the same widespread community support for the project that was reflected in passage of the bonds and raised $3.5 million to help supplement the bond.  “The new aquarium is a worthy addition to Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium which now more than ever is truly one of the real jewels of the Tacoma/Pierce County area,” Guadnola said.

GTH enthusiastically contributed to the Capital Campaign for the Pacific Seas Aquarium as part of its ongoing commitment to supporting local community organizations.
