ORANGE, BLUE & THE ZOO!
What could be better than the Oilers or the Edmonton Valley Zoo? That would have to be a calendar featuring the Oilers at the Zoo!
On September 12th our friends from the Edmonton Oilers visited the Edmonton Valley Zoo and participated in an exciting photo-shoot with the Zoo’s resident animals to create the first ever Oilers/Zoo Calendar – appropriately named “Orange, Blue and the Zoo”. This calendar was only made possible with support from our new friends at the Edmonton Oilers, the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation, and the incredible staff at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. We wish to personally thank Milan & Brittany Lucic for joining us as Valley Zoo Ambassadors and leading this exciting fundraiser.
Purchase your calendar online, or at the Zootique before 11:59 PM MT on November 30th, 2017 and your name will be entered into a draw to receive a second calendar……but this one will be signed by the players!

DATES: DECEMBER 1 – 3, 8 – 10, 15 – 17, 22 – 24 & 26 – 31, 2017 | 5 – 9 PM
Edmonton, the most northern city in North America with a population of over one million, is a world renowned winter metropolis with the proud title of Festival City. This December, Zoominescence, hosted by the Valley Zoo Development Society, will stage a spectacular exhibition of artistic light installations within the unique setting of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. The festival’s vision is to celebrate light, artistry, imagination and the strong spirit of our community in the winter. It will run for a 18 day period every December weekend.
We look forward to having you come celebrate the spirit of Edmonton with us again in 2017!
This Holiday Season, put a smile on a child’s face while supporting TWO local charities – SANTAS ANONYMOUS & THE VZDS!
This Holiday Season, you don’t have to head to the mall to buy your toys for Santas Anonymous, you can just purchase from the comfort of your own home and we will make sure that the toys are delivered for you! Between now and December 7th, when you purchase one of our 6 Santas Anonymous Christmas Gift Packages OR add a package to your purchase, the package will be donated to 630 CHED’s Santas Anonymous. This gift will help them, and Santa, realize their goal of seeing every child receive a new toy this Christmas! Our hand-selected packages aren’t just educational, they’re super fun and will be sure to put a smile on the face of the child that receives it this Christmas!
The proceeds from each gift purchased will be used by the Valley Zoo Development Society to Help Build Our Zoo, ensuring that generations of future Edmontonians have a fun setting in which they can learn about global biodiversity, and become lifelong ambassadors for the long term health of all species on our planet.
The Valley Zoo Development Society is a very small charity with a VERY big goal. We want to save the planet and everyone on it. Modest really. We want to save species, educate children about the animals we share the planet with, educate adults about conservation and environmental awareness – and we do that in one very simple way – by supporting the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo.
The first part of our commitment to Phase III Nature’s Wild Backyard is due December 31st. We will be cutting a 1.5 million cheque so part 1 of this amazing phase can be completed! We have 1.3 million dollars and we need YOUR help to build our zoo. We need to raise $200,000 before the end of the year!
We need your help!!
