Wild Friends

Connect Inspire Appreciate Care

One month at a time...

Lee Richardson Zoo connects people with wildlife, inspiring appreciation and understanding of the natural world through conservation, education, and engaging experiences. Though the City operates the Zoo, the Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo and our community have partnered together for over forty years to serve as the ambassadors of the Zoo. It is because of your continued support that we are able to perpetually strive to provide better habitats for our animal residents. We hope that you will consider a sustaining monthly gift to Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo and join our monthly giving program. Even small amounts given monthly can add up in a big way. Please complete the pledge form below and return to the Friends.  Donations are vital to the success of our zoo, so please give to the best of your ability.
