Did You Know?
The Screech Owl keeps in contact with its mate using a trilling song, known as the "bounce song."
Help our animals have a little fun and Trim-A-Tree for PPZ! We’re offering an opportunity for your family, business, or organization to enjoy an outing at the zoo while sponsoring and decorating a 6-foot tall tree. The trees will be on display during Wonderland of Lights, November 29 through December 29 at the Zoo. After the event, the trees will be given to our animals to provide them with some winter entertainment.
We’ll cover your tree with lights and you get to decorate the rest, or opt to have the PPZ staff decorate it for you (additional fee). We’ll also put a sign next to your tree so the thousands of visitors during Wonderland of Lights know of your contribution to the zoo and our animals. As an additional “thank you”, you’ll get 6 complimentary passes to Wonderland of Lights.
The cost of sponsoring a tree is a $125 (tax-deductible) donation to the Potter Park Zoological Society. Trees will be ready to decorate on November 18th. Contact Jen Rostar for more information and to schedule your decorating appointment or just click here for a registration form.
