Wish List

Here is the Fall/Winter 2015 version of our keepers' wish list. If you have unused items such as hand tools or lawn and garden items like shovels, rakes and hoses sitting around gathering dust we can certainly use them!,  Most of the items on this list are available from the many wonderful  local merchants that support the zoo, including Kirkwood Ace Hardware, Runnings and KT Animal Supply. If you would prefer to shop online, please click here for a link to our Amazon wish list.

If you are purchasing through Amazon, the zoo shipping address should come up in your address book at checkout. Just in case it does not, our UPS/delivery address is Dakota Zoo, 600 Riverside Park Road, Bismarck, ND 58504. Our Postal Service mailing address is PO Box 711, Bismarck, ND 58502-0711. Thank You!
