Sponsor an element at Hanifl Family Wild Woods, and support nature play for generations to come.
Do you see that beautiful girl right there…? That’s my granddaughter. Her name is Calley, and she just turned four years old. You should see her out at Hanfil Family Wild Woods! She’s a ball of energy, and can’t get enough of exploring the wonders of the Wild Woods. And from the look on my face in that picture, she can tire a grandpa out pretty quick!
Personally, the Wild Woods is a perfect place for me to bring Calley and get that crucial bonding I cherish with all my heart. Last week, we found a hidden fairy house next to the marsh, and we saw a mother goose sitting on her nest near the monkey bars. Calley loves the cargo climb, but she still needs her grandpa’s help getting to the top. She gets completely lost in the love for nature play at the Wild Woods. But the funny thing is…so do I. It truly is the most magical part of the Minnesota Zoo, and I am in awe of its powers to bring family closer together.
I INVITE YOU TO JOIN ME BY SPONSORING AN ELEMENT IN HANIFL FAMILY WILD WOODS AND CELEBRATE THE NATURE LOVER IN US ALL. Your sponsorship will be a lasting tribute to a child, grandchild or loved one, while supporting the Zoo’s mission to connect people, animals, and the natural world to save wildlife. It will also help maintain and grow the play area for years to come. I sponsored one of the fairy houses for Calley, and I will be a proud grandfather when she sees her name and a special message for her on the tribute sign.
There’s a sponsorship level for everyone, from a $60 donation to Member Music to a multi-year pledge towards a larger element like a slide or a log balance.
If you are a proud grandpa, a loving mom, or just someone that understands the power of nature to bring families together, I know this campaign is for you. Please find a sponsorship opportunity that speaks to you, and join me in the Wild Woods.
Thank you for your support,
President/Director, Minnesota Zoo
