Meet Forest. The new zoo mascot!

Winter 2013 Fundraiser


Our bears hibernate, peacocks tuck into their roosts and our baby fennec foxes huddle up next to each other for warmth. Staff maintain heaters and blankets for the animals while volunteers are breaking ice in water buckets in our barn. Wintertime provides the Zoo in Forest Park with its own set of challenges. As a beloved Springfield institution we must maintain the highest standards of care for the animals that depend on us 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Even while we are closed to the public and have little income.

This year is especially difficult as we continue to absorb the costs of extensive repairs resulting from the October 2011 snowstorm as well as massive cuts in state aid in 2012.

We graciously and urgently ask for your donations. Any size will do. $5.00 is wonderful and $100 is outstanding. We make every penny count. If you are unable to make a donation, please remember we offer “Zoo on the Go" Birthday Parties, Zoo Camp, Membership and Discovery Programs all year round. Book a program or pass the word to a friend, a school, a library or business that you know that would love the Zoo as much as you do!
