Here is how you can help: 

Donate Now

If you are excited about the zoo and aquarium coming, please donate to help bring it here faster.  DON'T WAIT!  Waiting will only make it take longer for "our zoo" to get here.  We have two ways for you to donate: once a year (now or as an annual donation) or once a month.   Our donation platform will take care of the details, you just need to decide.

Please contact our development manager for donating for specific things or if the donation is larger than $500.

development@nalzs.org

* Monthly donations allow you to make an affordable donation each month that can add up to a bigger impact over the course of the year.
