Front Entry, Plaza and Education Complex
In 2018, the Potawatomi Zoo kicked off a 10+ year Master Plan designed to upgrade the infrastructure of the century-old facility, enhance the visitor experience, and solidify its position as a major educational and economic development asset in our community. Phase 1 of the plan called for a new Front Entry and Plaza, and an Educational Complex that included a new gift shop and restrooms. When completed, these upgrades will improve guest circulation and accessibility to the appropriate zoo ambassadors through construction of a separate entrance for field trips and group visits, and add revenue generation opportunities through increased gift shop, membership, and admission sales.

As a previous supporter, the Foundation continues to view an investment in the zoo as an investment in the quality of life in our community. We agreed to provide a general grant, joining other like-minded public and private donors to support this worthwhile project.
