Capital Campaign

Support the Zoo’s current Masterplan 2016 Capital Campaign project, Kodiak Ridge, a new home for our magnificent Kodiak Bear, Dodge, and our two grizzly bears, Cody and Montana. This exciting new project will feature a wonderful living experience while allowing our guests to observe, learn, engage and be inspired. The 14,000 square foot exhibit will feature new amenities for animals and guests, a new pond for cooling off and hunting for fish, sandy beaches where children and bears can play, an immersive hollow log where visitors and bears interact face to face, two educational areas – bringing bears into the classroom through a special viewing window, an area for keepers to demonstrate how they care for the bears’ mental and physical well-being, and a den for the bears to relax after a hard day of play.
