Make a Gift in Memory or Honor of a Loved One

Gifts made in memory or honor of your loved one will leave a lasting impact by expanding understanding of the interrelationship between people and animals and the need to preserve the natural resources of our world. Miller Park Zoo offers a variety of ways to pay tribute to someone special.

To discuss tribute gifts and naming opportunities, please contact Paula Pratt at (309)434-2243 or PPratt@MPZoologicalSociety.org.

Help Restore the Carousel

Since 2001 when the existing carousel began operating inside Miller Park Zoo, children have been heard shouting ‘I want to ride the carousel!’  Often seen in zoos, carousels are a fun opportunity to make lasting family memories, popular enough to generate significant revenue and serve an even more important part of our mission by helping visitors connect with different species and introducing them to new ones in a uniquely joyful way.

There are many ways to support The Miller Park Zoo. Zoo Membership and Zoo Animal Adoptions are great options too. For more information on how you can help our zoo, please call (309) 434-2243 or email Info@MPZoologicalSociety.org.
