Goals for 2017
INCREASE & EXPAND EXHIBITS
The staff at the Thompson Park Zoo has been hard at work transforming several buildings. With your support, we'll be opening a new Conservation Center and Historic Root Cellar in Summer 2017.
SUPPORT MORE ANIMALS
Our mission at the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park has always been animal-centered. Our facilities have been designed to accommodate more animals than we currently house.
With your support, we would like to open our gates and build our collection of native animals.
Who are we looking forward to adopting? Elk, wolves, wolverines, fishers, and amphibians like the hellbender.
CREATE VOLUNTEER-BASED PROGRAMMING
Through the presence of docents and on-site demonstrations, we hope to increase visitor education and positive experiences.
