2012 Como Park Zoo and Conservatory
$300,000 the first year and $300,000 the second year are for grants of $200,000 each year to the Como Park Zoo and $100,000 each year to the Lake Superior Zoo for programmatic development.
Please see individual projects for measurable outcomes.
As a core to Como’s mission on education, updating the aging interpretive signage and adding interactive and technology based interpretive and hands-on experiences is important. The cost to develop, design and produce these items is needed for African Hoofstock, Large Cats and the Japanese Gardens. The displays will demonstrate Como Zoo’s commitment to world-wide conservation measures.
