An outdoor classroom, a conservation hub, and Minnesota’s most beloved cultural institution, Como Park Zoo and Conservatory is a window onto the wonders of the natural world. From fun and interactive conservation classes that foster curiosity about animals and plants, to the new improvements about to make waves in Como Zoo’s Aquatic Animals Building, your support for Como Friends helps our visitors connect with nature.
On Give to the Max Day, your gifts will support everything from the free admission our visitors depend on, to virtual classes that are helping to bring Como closer to kids in greater Minnesota. Community support from people like you gives Como Park Zoo and Conservatory the resources we need to rise to the moment with more progressive animal habitats, gorgeous year-round gardens and barrier-free access for all.
With your donation, you can help the historic Como Zoo and the gorgeous Marjorie McNeely Conservatory grow and thrive for generations to come. And thanks to a generous matching gift from Como Friends’ Board of Directors and an anonymous donor, your gift will be doubled, dollar for dollar, up to $26,500.
