About the Luncheon

On September 18, 2018 venture over to the Foss Waterway Seaport Museum and we will bring the Zoo to you! Touch an anemone, look through a microscope, and meet a new friend. The Zoo Society will be hosting their first luncheon to support the conservation engagement and educational programming that defines our Zoo and Aquarium’s mission and vision.

Guests will connect to the different programs offered by the Zoo; be inspired about how their support is so important to the youth in our community and learn how they can act to make a difference in the future.
