Give to the Max Day

for Como Park Zoo and Conservatory

Help Como Friends make an impact at Como Park Zoo and Conservatory!

A destination of discovery where people, plants and animals come together every day, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory depends on people like you.

Your gift on Give to the Max Day will help us share the wonders of nature with visitors from every walk of life.  Because of your support, Como can continue to offer free admission, family-friendly conservation programs, and experiences like Tropical Encounters, teeming with life from the deepest roots to the tallest treetop, for every visitor.

Thanks to Como Friends’ generous Board of Directors and donors Deb and Mike, every dollar you donate during Minnesota’s great day of giving will be doubled, dollar for dollar.

Over the last century, community support has helped Como grow into Minnesota’s most visited cultural institution, with more than 1.8 million annual visitors. With your donation, you can help our historic Como Zoo and the gorgeous Marjorie McNeely Conservatory survive and thrive for generations to come.

Thank you for your support!
