The Assiniboine Park Conservancy has received a $1 million donation towards its redevelopment campaign.

Richard Morantz, Sheree Walder Morantz and family made the contribution, which will fund the Imagine a Place Campaign. The donation has been designated towards the 10-acre Journey to Churchill exhibit currently under construction at the Assiniboine Park Zoo, scheduled to open this summer.

The Conservancy says the donation will be recognized at the Churchill Coast viewing window inside the Tundra Grill restaurant where diners will have the exclusive experience of watching polar bears through a 150-foot wide wall of windows.
