Help Como Friends make an impact at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory!
- Support free admission that’s made Como a Minnesota family tradition for more than five generations, providing up-close encounters with nature every day of the year.
- Participate in global conservation efforts for threatened species through Conservation Champions, an innovative Como Friends program that sends zoo keepers, horticulturists and education specialists to take part in field work and species preservation projects around the globe, bringing home new insights and expertise to share with Como visitors.
- An exciting floor-to-ceiling renovation of the Aquatic Animals Building that will introduce new species like a giant Pacific octopus, and add fun, interactive experiences such as a “research submarine” and a bubble window that will allow children to crawl into the penguin habitat.
Go to www.givemn.org/organization/Como-Friends to make an online donation that can be matched on Give to the Max Day.
Thank you for your support!
