Native Biodiversity in a Rooftop Landscape

There hasn't been much progress on fixing the structure below the green roof, but we do know that there's a bunch of water sitting on the cement deck, and it can't stay there. It's sounding pretty ominous, but I'll report the final decision when there is one. The good news is nothing was damaged in the Vertebrate Collection!

We don't have any updates on the state of the green roof. And the plants that are still comfortably situated on the green roof don't seem to care about the chaos that has erupted in their neighborhood.

As mentioned before, the Vertebrate Collection suffered a near-disaster. The good news is that it appears that no specimens were damaged, in large part because of the state-of-the-art cabinets that were installed when the Berry Center was constructed.

The green roof leaked over the weekend into the Vertebrate Collection. The Vertebrate Collection houses thousands of bird and mammal specimens from around the world, and we're all keeping our fingers crossed that water didn't get into the sealed cabinets to damage any of the specimens.
