Friends of the Baraboo Zoo

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 which contributed to improvements and new exhibits at Ochsner Park Zoo. Help support the zoo for future generations to enjoy.

In addition to the funds that have been dispersed, just over $400,000.00 has been raised towards the installation of a Brand New River Otter Exhibit. The FOBZ has been working diligently for several years raising funds for this exhibit; fundraising efforts will continue into 2019 to acquire the remainder of funds needed. Watch for the grand opening in summer of 2019.
