Walk to Save Animals

September 19, 2020

Blank Park Zoo is proud to announce the start of a brand new peer-to-peer fundraising event, Walk to Save Animals on Saturday, September 19, 2020.

Through Walk to Save Animals, wildlife supporters and animal enthusiasts like you have the opportunity to fundraise in support of Blank Park Zoo, Iowa’s only accredited Zoo!

Walk to Save Animals supports all aspects of Blank Park Zoo’s mission, to inspire an appreciation of the natural world through conservation, education, research and recreation. Walk on behalf of the 2,000+ animals that call Blank Park Zoo home and their wild counterparts, as well as supporting the Zoo’s daily operations, educational programming, and local and global conservation efforts.

A step for Blank Park Zoo; a stride for wildlife.
