Welcome to Friends of the Baraboo Zoo!

Ochsner Park Zoo is one of just five small municipal free zoos in the state of Wisconsin.

The Friends of the Baraboo Zoo, Inc. is a 501c3 non-profit established in 1984. Our main purpose is to raise funds to support the betterment of Baraboo’s Zoo, Ochsner’s Park Zoo.

Our dedicated group has raised over $1,000,000.00 through fundraisers and generous donations. These proceeds contribute to improvements and new exhibits at the zoo. Help us support the zoo for future generations to enjoy.
