Love Your Zoo Campaign
Lincoln Children’s Zoo is taking the first step toward the largest expansion in its history - an expansion that will stay true to the vision and dream of the Zoo's founders. One which will create more interaction, more contact and more family memories than ever before. This expansion is a result of support and love from the community and the millions of visitors who’ve walked the Zoo grounds.
In 2019, the Zoo will open with four new amazing areas - a world-class giraffe feeding experience, an up-close tiger encounter, an indoor adventure where children will climb with monkeys and a plaza with a playful stream. The Love Your Zoo campaign is the largest in Zoo history and continues the mission of firsthand interaction with living things and the Zoo's pursuit of saving endangered animals.
