For over 50 years, The Zoo in Forest Park and Education Center has educated and engaged countless children and families throughout our community. Every day I am humbled and honored to volunteer in this capacity; to watch over 44,000 people enter our gates annually; to interact with over 150 native and exotic animals; and to stand alongside an amazing team of dedicated professionals who work tirelessly to ensure that our animal residents are happy and healthy, our members and guests engaged, and The Zoo that we all love flourishes for another half century. The foundation of our success is built by the members of our community, like you, who support us by making a gift, purchasing a membership, or volunteering their valuable time. You are the stakeholders in The Zoo; my team and I work every day to provide you with an experience that is educational, entertaining, and engaging. Thank you for supporting your local, independent, non-profit zoo!
