One-Stop Shopping - Zoo Style!

Nov 30, 2011

The Holiday season is officially here and that can only mean one thing….what to get all of those special people in your life? Fear not, Binder Park Zoo has the perfect solution. From memberships and ADOPTs to plush animals and animal artwork, Binder Park Zoo has the just the thing for everyone on your list.

Binder Park Zoo Memberships are the perfect gift for families who enjoy the outdoors and everything that nature has to offer, for grandparents who would like to take the grandkids out for some wild adventures or even for someone who enjoys taking strolls through the acres of natural woodlands that Binder Park Zoo has to offer. All of this and much, much more can be realized through the gift of a Binder Park Zoo membership. Memberships are valid for an entire calendar year and are available for purchase in the Safari Gift Shop during Holiday Nights hours, online at or in the Zoo’s main office.

Binder Park Zoo also offers ADOPT packages for a wide variety of animals. What could be better than becoming an official ADOPT Parent of a lemur, cheetah or even a snow leopard. In fact, in celebration of the Holiday Season, Binder Park Zoo is offering a snow leopard ADOPT special. For a limited time, become an Official ADOPT Parent of a snow leopard for only $40 and receive an official ADOPT Certificate, an informational fact sheet about snow leopards, a color photograph of your adopted animal and an adorable snow leopard plush! ADOPTs can be purchased in the Safari Gift Shop during Holiday Nights hours, online at or in the Zoo’s main office.

Recently, Binder Park Zoo has added a new animal enrichment program to their arsenal; The Animal Artwork Enrichment Program. Many of Binder Park Zoo’s most well-known residents have had the opportunity to participate in this program including snow leopards, lemurs, cheetahs, a hedgehog, a blue-fronted Amazon parrot, miniature horses, and even a ball python to name a few.

“The animals truly do benefit from enrichment programs such as these,” stated Jenny Barnett, Binder Park Zoo’s Director of Wildlife Management, Conservation and Education. “These types of activities keep the animals’ minds active and engaged. The different textures from the paint, canvas and paper is something brand new for the animals to experience. As an added bonus, we are left with one-of-a-kind pieces that can’t be found anywhere else in the world. Each piece of artwork is unique to that animal and each supporter of the program can take solace in the fact that each piece of artwork is truly the only one of its kind.”

People can help support The Animal Artwork Enrichment Program in the Zoo’s main office.

Binder Park Zoo’s Safari Gift Shop will be open during Holiday Nights Hours; December 16-23rd from 5-8pm. Whether you are looking for safari themed t-shirts for the wild ones in your family, an adorable plush giraffe or zebra or even house wares such as wine glasses, coffee mugs, trivets and even candles, the Safari Gift Shop has what you are looking for. As an added bonus, most everything is 50% off!
