Donate to A Wild Affair!

Stone Zoo has received a very generous challenge to raise $2,000 in donations to A Wild Affair! Our longtime supporter and volunteer Jackie Green has given $2,000 and challenges us to raise that same amount before June 21. No donation is too small, and all proceeds go directly towards critical funding for Stone Zoo's mission and animal care. Please help us reach this goal - your support is needed now more than ever!

Donations can also be made directly by texting StoneZoo to 76278, then replying Give (donation amount) to your welcome text.
