Evening in the Gardens

Thank you to everyone who supported the 2022 Evening in the Gardens, a night that celebrated the Zoo’s mission, announced our strengthened commitment to conservation, and honored F. William “Bill” McNabb III with the Conservation Impact Award for his leadership and service. We also extend our gratitude to the event chairs: Kamla and Raj Gupta, John A. Ginter, & Caroline B. Rogers.

More than 400 guests attended the October 6th event, which raised nearly $800,000 to help us care for our animals and deepen our impact in the global conservation landscape.
