Become of part of Zoo history with the purchase of an engraved brick for you or your loved ones! Zoo bricks are located in the Anthony Wayne Trail entry complex around the base of the panda statues and are visible to nearly one million Zoo visitors each year.
Zoo bricks are a great way to commemorate any special occasion or provide a lasting memorial for a loved one. And, each brick you purchase will serve as recognition of your support for The Toledo Zoo.
Funds raised through the Zoo brick program benefit the Zoo’s capital budget, providing for regular maintenance of existing exhibits and buildings. Your investment is fully tax-deductible.
Each 4” x 8” brick will accommodate twelve characters per line (including spacing and punctuation) and up to three lines of text. Your inscription will be laser engraved directly into the brick, providing a glass-like appearance. With each order you will receive a certificate of purchase, suitable for framing. The cost for each brick is $100.
Place your order online by choosing how many bricks you would like to purchase:
|1 Brick||2 Bricks||3 Bricks||4 Bricks|
You may also reserve your Zoo brick(s), by calling the Development Office at 419-385-5721, ext. 2091 or fill out the zoo brick order form and fax it to us at 419-389-8670.
Should you ever wish to replace your existing brick, you will be responsible only for the cost of the brick’s production.
Please note that bricks are laid only in the spring and fall. The deadline for fall installation is July 16; the deadline for spring installation is April 15. If you are ordering your plaque as a Christmas gift, please complete your order by December 14 to allow for adequate processing time.
