  • Wild Friends
    Lee Richardson Zoo connects people with wildlife, inspiring appreciation and understanding of the natural
    world through conservation, education, and engaging experiences. Though the City operates the Zoo, the
    Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo and our community have partnered together for over forty years to serve as the
    ambassadors of the Zoo. It is because of your continued support that we are able to perpetually strive to
    provide better habitats for our animal residents. We hope that you will consider a sustaining monthly gift to
    Friends of Lee Richardson Zoo and join our monthly giving program. Even small amounts given monthly can add
    up in a big way. Please complete the pledge card below and return to the Friends office. Donations are vital
    to the success of our zoo, so please give to the best of your ability.
