Support Your Zoo

Thank you for your interest in supporting your NEW Zoo & Adventure Park!  The NEW Zoo is one of only seven Association of Zoo & Aquarium accredited zoos that are self-funded in the entire country!  This means that we do not receive any tax support for our daily operating costs, and instead rely on our visitors, members, and generous donors to help us keep the zoo open. We are grateful for your support!

Giving ZooDay (#GivingTuesday)

All donations received during our 2017 Giving Tuesday campaign will support efforts to create an indoor, interactive play-space inside of our Giraffe Discovery Center. This play space will include educational graphics, as well as toddler-appropriate playground equipment and an indoor playground floor. Thank you for your support!

You can donate via your PayPal account, credit, or debit card at the link above, OR you can mail a paper check to the following address:
