Como Friends gives Como Park Zoo and Conservatory the extra care and feeding it needs to grow stronger, live on, and remain available to all.
One of the last remaining free zoos in the country, Como Park Zoo & Conservatory is a destination loved by the community.
Como’s commitment to free admission invites people from all walks of life to gather as a community to understand the natural world. Free admission provides up-close encounters with animals and access to the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory’s gorgeous gardens, 365 days a year.
Your tax-deductible gift ensures Como Park Zoo & Conservatory has the resources to provide innovative education and conservation programs, progressive animal habitats and public gardens that engage the senses.
This year, your contribution will help Como Friends, the nonprofit partner to Como Park Zoo & Conservatory, invest in high-impact habitat improvements like Como Harbor, Sparky’s new home, and provide free admission to millions of visitors.
