Wild Conservation (21+)

Join us for Wild Conservation at Como an after-hours event for adults to benefit for Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, in support of the plants, animals, and free access you love at Como!

The Conservation Quest is a digital scavenger hunt using the GooseChase App. You can put together a team of friends, bring a date, or play solo. You’ll take pictures, post videos, and answer questions across the Zoo and Conservatory all about the plants, animals, and conservation work at Como. The GooseChase leaderboard lets you check in real time where your team ranks, how many points you have, and how close you are to the finish line.
