Goals of the Friends of the Zoo

The goals and objectives of the Friends of the Zoo Inc. are to promote and support the Magnetic Hill Zoo and its programs in conservation, education, research, and recreation.  Also, to create and improve facilities and environments of the animals at the Zoo. 

Over the years, the Friends of the Zoo have funded the construction of many projects at the Zoo, including five award winning exhibits named the Ecodome, Pridelands, Cougar Country, Jaguar Junction, and the Amur Cat Project.

Example fundraisers conducted by the Friends of the Zoo include Sunday Winter Openings, Easter EGGstravaganza, Adopt a Friend, FunZOOla, Boo at the Zoo, and Wild Lights.

Current Fundraising Project

All funds raised will be put towards the zoo’s next animal habitat improvement project.
