As part of its effort to strengthen and enhance the operational and educational services at Micke Grove Zoo, the Micke Grove Zoological Society (MGZS) will not be hosting the 2014 Zoo Lights.

The MGZS is dedicated to making a series of on-going improvements in its core areas of service while being responsible financial stewards of the organization.

The public is invited to continue supporting Micke Grove Zoo by participating in any of its exceptional education programs available for registration right now, by becoming a  Zoo Member or Zoo Parent, booking a private birthday party, or making a direct tax-deductible donation.

Thank you for supporting your local zoo.
