When you Sponsor an Animal or Garden with Como Friends you help to elevate and enrich all of Como Park Zoo and Conservatory’s daily work, fuel support for improvements, and support free admission for every visitor every day of the year.
Support for the 2021 KSTP-TV 5 Eyewitness News Como Friends Sponsor-a-thon will provide:
- Best practices and specialized care of the animals and gardens.
- Education programs like adapting the 2nd Grade Field Trip Program for Distance Learning.
- Updates to exhibits like the Aquatic Animals Building.
- Free admission for nearly 2 million yearly visitors to enjoy the plants and animals.
