Centennial Wall of Fame
Stake Your Claim on the Zoo's Centennial Wall of Fame!
Are you wild about your Zoo?
Did you hear? 2022 is a BIG year, a REALLY BIG year, I mean a REALLY, REALLY BIG year!
Next year, the Zoo will turn 100 and as part of this historic event, we are building our Centennial Wall of Fame in the Front Plaza of the Zoo where you can be permanently memorialized for all to see on a personalized tile.
In 1922, the Zoo began with a donation of 18 birds and some Barnum circus retirees. Today, Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is a state of the art, nationally accredited, non-profit facility working year-round to care for more than 100 species – including some that are facing extinction.
Purchase your tile today and help your Zoo build toward its future. Your purchase will help the Zoo renovate and build new habitats, grow our educational opportunities both on and off-site, and create memorable guest experiences.
Become a Zoo Wildlife Steward
This is a special opportunity to leave your mark on the Zoo and showcase your love and commitment to wildlife and wild places. Use your tile(s) to honor your children, grandchildren, parents, or pets, highlight your favorite Zoo resident, or share a favorite quote and stake your claim as part of the Zoo’s history.
Only 650 tiles will be sold for this exclusive and limited-time opportunity, so don’t wait.
We’ve come a long way in our first 100 years, and there’s much more work to do in the next 100. The challenges facing wildlife and endangered animals have never been greater, but we’re determined to continue our important conservation work. Come swing into our centennial with us and see the difference your support makes!
Each $150 commemorative tile contains space for 3 lines of text, with 20 characters per line including spaces and punctuation. Text will be automatically centered.
