A $300,000 donation to the Lincoln Children’s Zoo was awarded toward the Love Your Zoo campaign. That donation was presented Friday from Scheels Sporting Goods in Southpointe Pavillions.
The money donated by Scheels will go toward a new education center at the zoo, which will be home to Lincoln Public Schools’ Zoo School.
The Love Your Zoo campaign also includes bringing new habitats to the Zoo, including giraffes, tigers and spider monkeys.
The Scheels donation put the Lincoln Children’s Zoo has cleared $15.5 million of its $20-million fundraising goal.
