Saint Louis Zoo Community Input Sessions

What:

The Saint Louis Zoo is seeking community input on the future of the Saint Louis Zoo in Forest Park and new Saint Louis Zoo North Campus in north St. Louis County. Members of the public are invited to attend either community session to share their ideas about Zoo experiences, animals, conservation and more. Reservations are required to attend the input sessions. Visit stlzoo.org/inputsessions.

Time slots are for one hour and attendees may show up any time during that timeframe.

Topics for discussion at both sessions will include:

  • Past experiences and experiences people would like to have on future visits
  • Animals people would like to see either at the Zoo or the North Campus
