ZooRocks and MemoryStones will be exposed to natural elements, pedestrian traffic, Park maintenance (including snow clearing, ice removal, and general landscaping), and other wear and tear, which may affect the inscriptions and the stones appearance. Once installed, ZooRocks and MemoryStones will not be replaced or repaired. ZooRocks and MemoryStones will remain in place until such time that the plaza needs to be upgraded, replaced/removed or changes to the building or space are necessary or due to circumstances beyond the control of the Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC). APC will attempt to contact the donor should such a circumstance arise.
