Como Friends’ Supporter Special Access Events

9:00 am to 10:00 am

Como’s hidden gem, the Large Cats Building, was updated thanks to donations to Como Friends. From an engaging learning and creative play zone featuring a safari jeep and interactive games, to a nature-inspired decorative theme throughout the building, improvements to the Large Cats Building were made possible by community support.

Como Friends members and donors are invited to join us from 9:00 am – 10:00 am on Saturday, May 18, 2019 for this exclusive Special Access Event for Como Friends’ Supporters.

Come see what’s new in Como’s Large Cats Building, including the playful new cougar cubs, Jasper and Ruby.

  • Hear from Como’s expert zookeepers about saving large cat species, from snow leopard tracking in central Asia to cougar rescues in North America.
  • Visit with one of Como’s reptilian animal ambassadors.
  • Make a catnip craft to bring home to your own fab feline!

Please RSVP by emailing comomembership@comofriends.org or calling 651-487-8229.
