Program Sponsorship

Potter Park Zoo’s program sponsorship(s) provide individuals and businesses the opportunity to demonstrate their initiatives to thousands of guests annually- on zoo grounds and at outreaches too! These sponsorship opportunities provide brand visibility for your business and demonstrate a strong commitment to the surrounding communities and their residents.

The zoo has extensive education programming offered at the zoo and off-site at community partner locations.

  • Zoo in Your Neighborhood (ZIYN) and FALCONERS are our two community engagement programs here at the zoo. Follow this link to learn more about these programs (https://potterparkzoo.org/family-programs/).
  • BIG Zoo Lesson (BZL) is an innovative, interdisciplinary, problem-based approach to teaching and learning. Teachers bring their students to the zoo for a full week of activities and lessons. BZL offers a variety of learning experiences with visual, auditory, and tactile experiences to help students retain the materials and lessons throughout the week.

We invite you to learn more about our education program sponsorship opportunities. For more information or to set up an appointment, please contact Amy L. Morris-Hall at amorris@ingham.org or at (517) 795-6122
