There are amazing animals and gardens just waiting for your support…how about a polar bear, Amur Tiger, spider monkey, or penguin?  Perhaps the Sunken Garden or the Japanese Garden? Animal and Garden Sponsorships make great gifts for any occasion!

By sponsoring the animal and gardens at Como you are helping to support your favorite zoo resident or horticultural wonder.  Your contribution will be used to enhance animal habitats, cultivate award-winning gardens and maintain the best care possible for all of Como inhabitants. Becoming a sponsor is easy - plus your contribution is tax-deductible.

The Como Zoo & Conservatory is open 365 days a year and is free every day of the year. Whether you visit the Como Park Zoo & Conservatory every summer or haven't been for years, there is something new for you!
