The Children's Nature Center relies on private donors to provide much needed funding for our 120 animals, animal care, educational programing, and exhibits.

Zoo Parent- By becoming a Zoo Parent your donation will go towards your animal's care and daily feeding. Your dollars will feed stingray or shark for a day or our dart frogs for a month. Choose your animal from our animal list. See the perks of parenting click here! Animals may have multiple Zoo Parents and must remain in their Nature Center homes. Animal adoptions are valid for one year from the date of processing. Package levels and animal choices are subject to change without notice.

Classroom and Scout Troop Adoptions- a great way to give back to our community! Gifts for donation follow the Zoo Parent scale plus donations of $250 or more will receive a free Nature Center educational tour. Those donating $1,500 and above will be eligible for a school animal assembly.
