Erratum
In the text for the 2018 OALA Awards, on page 33 of Ground 42 (Summer 2018), incorrect information is included in the description of Gary Heine’s work on the Toronto Zoo and on Centreville Amusement Park. The text should read: “Gary was involved in programming, planning, and detailed design development of the Toronto Zoo and most recently the Children’s Wildlife Discovery Area, and in 2016 he updated the master plan and design of the Centreville Amusement Park on Centre Island, Toronto.”
