Community Events: Zoobilee

2500 Zoobilee gala revelers “went green” this past July at the 19th annual event. Organizers encouraged the use of locally-grown food and compostable supplies. “We couldn’t be happier with the outcome,” said Zoo Society executive director Carl Zenker. “It’s such an honor to host our community for Zoobilee each summer, but to do so and practice the earth-friendly efforts we promote made us truly proud.” This year’s event raised more than $500,000 to support the zoo’s education and conservation programs.
