Facilitated by HBA of Billings, ZooMontana has officially broken ground on its new event pavilion. HBA member, EEC Eggart Engineering & Construction is donating 100% of labor costs!! ZooMontana is thankful to other HBA members who have also stepped up to help – Action Electric has offered the same labor free deal for the required electrical work and MT Piering and Concrete Lifting and DT Services donated the excavating services. “The generosity of these companies along with the incredible forethought of the HBA is truly amazing” said Zoo Director Jeff Ewelt. “We continue to be blown away by those wanting to help move ZooMontana forward and are so lucky to be located in a city so dedicated to giving back”, added Ewelt.  EEC owner Quentin Eggart agrees. “We love to involve ourselves with the community. All of us at EEC feel the Zoo is an incredible community asset worth investing our time into”. If all goes by plan, the new ZooPavilion will be ready to receive its first guests by early summer.  The Zoo estimates over 20,000 people will use the pavilion just this year with weddings, company picnics and fundraisers.
