Give a Unique Gift of an Animal Information Sign or a Bench

Stake your claim to an animal-information sign on any continent in the Milwaukee County Zoo. These fun, colorful displays feature cool animal facts and photos. Or consider putting the name of a loved one or a memorial name on a bench.

Signs and benches are available on a first-come, first-served basis. To give a gift or for more information, please contact Julie Brellenthin at (414) 258-2333 or e-mail

Donors at the $1,000+ level will receive individual recognition on a plate mounted on a cedar frame. Recognition will continue for five years. When the sign is replaced, you will be given the first opportunity to renew your gift for that specific animal’s sign.

Donors at the $2,500+ level will receive recognition on a plate mounted on the bench.
