Bowling for the Beasts

Want to have fun and help the animals at the Milwaukee County Zoo? Then come to the Zoological Society of Milwaukee’s (ZSM) annual Beastly Bowl-a-Thon! Everyone from youngsters to ace bowlers can compete for cool gadgets and fun family packages at this Feb. 25 event, which benefits the ZSM’s Sponsor an Animal program. When you sponsor an animal, you’re helping support every animal at the Zoo. Please see below for details.
