Zoo Do has become the Miller Park Zoological Society’s signature fundraising event and with this year’s theme, it is certain to be the most unique Zoo Do ever. Chosen by the planning committee, the theme is Voodoo at the Zoo Do. Inspired by the magical traditions, spirits with healing powers and the sights and sounds of New Orleans the evening will feature creole inspired cuisine and unique auction items sure to excite. Not to mention animal encounters and entertainment straight from the bayou.

Co-chairs Mikel and Nicole Petro are especially enthusiastic about taking part in the planning and execution of the event. Funds raised will be used to support Miller Park Zoo.

Voodoo at the Zoo Do will take place September 14, 5:00 pm at Miller Park Zoo and Pavilion.

Members Night A Sucess!

There are many reasons to support the Miller Park Zoo. A Zoo membership is one important way, and our recent Members Night event shows that this option not only benefits the residents of our zoo but also comes with some fun benefits to our members.

An annual event, Members Night was held July 18 from 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Over 650 guests enjoyed animal encounters, zookeeper presentations, food and drinks from seven stations located throughout the Zoo, free carousel rides and face painting by the Zoo Lady. It was a hot summer evening but that didn’t seem to bother our members.

Hats off to those who volunteered that evening to assure the success of the event. It took over 25 hardworking friends of Miller Park Zoo to plan, set up and serve our members. We also want to thank Avanti’s, the Meads Family, Monical’s Pizza, Jason’s Deli, Tarvin’s Culligan Water, the Donut Experiment, Papa John’s Pizza and Beer Nuts for donating food and drinks for the event. Thank you to the Miller Park Zoo staff who worked extra hours to make this a special evening for our members.
