• Eterna-Tree Leaf a Legacy

    “Leaf” a Legacy



The Edmonton Valley Zoo has been the scene of many fond memories for countless families and many generations. Now, you can give these memories permanent recognition, and help support the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo, by having your name or the name of a loved one, engraved on a leave on our Eterni-tree.

The “Leaf-a-Legacy” program is the cornerstone of our Public Capital Campaign and a funding source for Nature’s Wild Backyard – the newest phase of development at the Edmonton Valley Zoo. By purchasing a leaf, you help guarantee that future generations will be able to visit “Nature’s Wild Backyard” and see your commitment to helping build, not only our zoo but our community.

The Eterni-tree and the “Leaf a Legacy” program is our creative equivalent to many organizations “buy a brick” or “name on a wall” fundraisers.

The tree is made from wrought iron with stainless steel leaves. Each tree has 400 leaves, which are available to the public for a $1,000 donation. We currently have one tree on site. Our goal is to have five of these beautiful trees located throughout the property, for a fundraising total of $2 million dollars.

Donation options for a leaf include:

$30 a month for 36 months (3 years)
$45 a month for 24 months (2 years)
$90 a month for 12 months (1 year)
$1,000 one time payment

Thank you for “leaf-ing” a lasting legacy and helping support the revitalization of the Edmonton Valley Zoo.


It is through today’s zoos that future generations will come to a greater understanding of the human impact on the natural world and be motivated to preserve it and reverse the damage already done. Every donation, big or small, helps us revitalize our beloved Edmonton Valley Zoo! Thank you for caring for the animals, our children’s future and the planet!
