Grab your clubs and hit the green! Gators on the Green is Blank Park Zoo’s annual golf tournament that raises funds to support the Zoo, the Zoo’s education programs and conservation efforts near and far.

This year’s tournament is on a Saturday so the entire family can enjoy a day outside while supporting the Blank Park Zoo! The Zoo will have special activities and animal enrichment programs during and following the tournament, so continue your family day of fun right next door at the Zoo.

To learn more about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Jennifer at or 515-974-2533.

For more information, please contact or 515-974-2628.

In an effort to cut down on as many touch points as possible at the tournament, we are moving the silent auction portion online this year! The bidding is open now and closes at 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 1.

Have you ever wanted your very own piece of rhino art? How about getting to meet and help the artist Kiano, an Eastern Black Rhino at Blank Park Zoo, create the masterpiece that you get to take home? This is one of the many unique auction packages available.

Remember, every single bid will impact animals here in Iowa and globally. Your support allows the Zoo to continuously provide top-notch care to our animals, 365 days a year. Plus, the Zoo gives back a portion of every dollar to a variety of global conservation movements, like the International Rhino Foundation and Snow Leopard Trust.
