Como Friends

What Brings You To Como? Share Your Memories and Give to the Max!

A favorite destination for five generations, your contributions give Como Park Zoo and Conservatory the resources it needs to welcome two million visitors from every walk of life.

No matter where you live, there's a destination on the map where every Minnesotan feels at home--Como Park Zoo and Conservatory.

For over a century, Como's commitment to free admission has welcomed visitors from every walk of life to explore its natural wonders - from the smallest spring buds to the tallest giraffe.

This Give to the Max Day, join Como Friends as we celebrate memories that make Como the most visited cultural destination in the state, and the progress that keeps more than two million visitors coming back to Como. 

Thanks to a generous $20,000 match from Horton, Inc., your donation will go twice as far with every donation matched dollar for dollar! 

Update: an anonymous donor is helping increase our match with a $5,000 challenge!  


Your gift to Como Friends helps preserve Como's free admission, plant stunning new landscapes like the Minnesota Garden, prepare for new Como Zoo arrivals, like the new baby gorilla, and pave the way for exciting building improvements like the new Seals and Sea Lions habitat.
