29 Oct November 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner – Friends of the Zoo – Fun Places To Go Near Me
Our November 2018 Pedal For A Purpose Partner is Friends of the Zoo.
Friends of the Zoo is a nonprofit organization with a mission to help make Dickerson Park Zoo a first-class facility. Friends of the Zoo generates revenue to fund vital zoo projects and programs through various operations and activities. Two of the most important beneficiaries of Friends of the Zoo fundraising are the conservation education department and Dickerson Park Zoo’s field conservation support.
The conservation education department hosts classes such as Zee Education Broadens the Realization of Animals (Z.E.B.R.A.) and has resources for both parents and teachers. As for conservation support, the protection of animals worldwide is the primary focus of accredited zoos and aquariums. Dickerson Park Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and is a part of AZA SAFE: Saving Animals From Extinction and the Species Survival Plans (SSP).
Friends of the Zoo also operates the Safari Trading Company gift shop, Bush Country Cafe and the Outpost, Titus Express miniature train ride and animal contact/feeding opportunities. Your purchases in these areas help support Friends of the Zoo’s overall mission of support for Dickerson Park Zoo.
If you are looking for group activities in Springfield Missouri, keep us in mind. Book a tour with The Trolley Bike to support Friends of the Zoo. If you don’t know which date to reserve yet, you can still purchase a gift certificate anytime during the month of November in 2018. They’ll get your donation and you can always use that gift certificate later to book your tour once you’ve selected a date while looking for fun places to go near me.
Now you get a great “two for one” when you book a tour on The Trolley Bike. Not only does your group get to have a blast on Springfield’s Pedal Powered Party, but you get to feel proud knowing you’ve helped a deserving local organization make our community a better place to live.
Pedal. Drink. Have Fun and Give Back with The Trolley Bike’s Pedal For A Purpose.
