Browse Donations

Many animals at Reid Park Zoo, such as the elephants and giraffes, eat browse (tender shoots, twigs, and green leaves of trees and shrubs) every single day. Zoo staff also use browse as a way to add enrichment to the lives of our animals.

How can you help? We’re always looking for fresh, healthy donations of recently trimmed or felled landscaping from our community. Check out the list of accepted plants and FAQs below, and let us know if you’d like to coordinate a donation. We appreciate your donations!
