Friends of the Zoo

The Friends of the Zoo promote and support the Magnetic Hill Zoo and its programs in conservation, education, research, and recreation.

ABOUT THE FRIENDS OF THE ZOO

The Friends of the Zoo are a group of volunteers who organize fundraiser events at the Zoo throughout the year, such as the Sunday Winter Openings, EcoFest, FunZOOla, Boo at the Zoo and Wild Lights. All net profits from the events go directly to building improvements at the Zoo.

Over the past 30 years, these events have raised over $2 million and financed the construction or renovation of many exhibits at the zoo, including and most recently the new habitats for the red fox and Arctic wolf. Several of these projects have won national awards.
