NATURE’S WILD BACKYARD

The Valley Zoo Development Society is committed to raising funds in support of the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo. Our most recent commitment is to raise over $9 million dollars to fund the the next phase of construction, Natures Wild Back Yard. We are confident that through donations from individuals, corporations, government, and private foundations, we will reach this goal.

If you would like to help, the “Ways to Give” menu located throughout our website is full of wonderful ways you can help the Valley Zoo Development Society raise funds and promote awareness to ensure the continued development of Edmonton’s beloved Valley Zoo. We sincerely thank you for your generosity.

Nature’s Wild Backyard will build on the Inner Zoo’s origins as the “Storyland Zoo” by rededicating it to children and young families. The design for Nature’s Wild Backyard is situated at the intersection of environmental stewardship and a child’s thirst for wonder through interaction. The design strategically embraces play and discovery within the framing of immersive experiences as a means of intimately relating the visitor and a comprehensive ecology. Laid out in a series of Zones, Nature’s Wild Backyard will allow our guests to experience each Zone in the same manner as the animals that inhabit it.
