The campaign to reimagine all that a zoo can be



Will You Help Us Save Forests for All?

Every person can create meaningful change. Every dollar makes a difference. By working together, we can make a remarkable impact on forests, wildlife and humanity.

Now is the time to come together—as a community and with communities around the world to build a more sustainable tomorrow. Join the movement today by making a gift.




Plant Your Name

Help protect forests and have your generosity recognized in our new Forest Trailhead exhibit with your gift of $2,500 or more to the Forests for All fund. Honor a loved one or reflect your love of nature for generations to come with a beautiful leaf in the new exhibit.

In 2026, Woodland Park Zoo will open the Forest Trailhead exhibit—a state-of-the-art home for forest icons like red pandas, Matschie’s tree kangaroos and kea parrots. Please consider planting your name alongside powerful forest conservation stories like our Tree Kangaroo Conservation Program that will inspire our 1.2 million annual guests to practice simple, forest-friendly choices in their everyday lives.

The Forests for All campaign and the Forest Trailhead exhibit are a window into the zoo’s next era: a community-led movement to protect, restore, and sustain the world’s forests and the species who call them home. Please join us as we chart a path forward to save forests and reimagine what a zoo can be.


Thank You for Your Generous Support

Woodland Park Zoo has served our community for nearly 125 years. We’ve remained true to our commitment to save wildlife and grow the conservation movement by connecting people with nature, providing learning opportunities, protecting vulnerable populations, and so much more.

This is our moment to unleash our full potential, elevating our commitment to conservation so we can do more than ever to safeguard the environment. Through the Forests for All campaign, we’re taking a stand to create a better future for all living creatures. But we can’t preserve endangered species and habitats on our own. We need the support of people like you to chart a new course for our planet. Thank you for joining the movement!


If you are interested in making a gift of stock or securities, please contact Sarah Valentine, Vice President of Development, at or 206.548.2624. Thank you!
