Since 1896, Denver Zoo has been a vital cornerstone for the communities we serve, welcoming over 1.5 million learners to our campus each year with open arms. Regardless of age, ability, location, or economic status, all visitors experience the wonder and undeniable magic felt in the presence of wildlife.

Cardholders are entitled to up to five free visits with each paid adult, ticketed events and special programs accepted.
Families of Early Head Start (0–3) and Denver Great Kids Head Start (3–5) receive year-round access to 22 cultural venues.
An average of 300,000 people are invited to visit us completely free of charge, year after year.
The Zofnass Barclay Family’s multi-year pledge established the Zofnass Barclay Family Nature Play Trail which serves to educate our younger guests on how to engage and explore the WILD.
As a corporate partner of the Zoo, Children’s Hospital Colorado, supports our annual Teddy Bear Clinic fostering curiosity and care for animals. Children’s Hospital Colorado is Denver Zoo’s Wild Milestones partner and together we produce stories about patients and animals who share similar medical challenges.
More than 450,000 youth have benefitted from Denver Zoo scholarships, which provide awards to families and schools who would otherwise be unable to experience Zoo programs. A gift of any amount will provide learners of all ages, abilities, cultures and economic status the opportunity to share the wonders of our WILD animals at Denver Zoo.
Your generosity and gift of support will allow Denver Zoo to continue welcoming and
engaging learners of all ages with open arms.
