Get involved

Every donation to the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo goes toward zoo improvements.  Contributions enable Friends to host celebrated events, improve or build new exhibits and offer recreational and educational opportunities at the zoo.  Whether given as an annual gift, in support of a capital campaign or to remember a loved one, each gift helps improve your zoo.

Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo are always looking for a helping paw. Offer your time to make our events a success. Join our volunteer list and we'll contact you as our next event approaches.

Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo offers a variety of ways to pay tribute to those that that are special in your life or to memorialize those who have passed on.  Our staff will gladly assist you in helping to find the best way to leave a lasting reminder of those that are special to you.
