Grow Wild Society

The Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium formed the Grow Wild Society as a way of thanking donors who give $1,000 or greater annually. During the inaugural Grow Wild Society (GWS) event, members were invited to be the very first to watch polar bears swimming overhead in the Water’s Edge viewing tunnel. Since then, GWS members and their families have enjoyed special encounters with our black rhinos Azizi and Jomo; toured our International Conservation Center (ICC) and were treated to a picnic; and partook in cocktails and hors d’oeuvres on the Zoo’s private green roof and gardens.

Your membership in the Grow Wild Society will give you a closer partnership with the foremost conservation organization in the region, while supporting the Zoo’s vital mission and current programs.

New members are always welcome to join the Grow Wild Society. Membership begins when a gift or pledge of $5,000, $2,500, or $1,000 is made and is valid for one year from that date.
