The Greenville Zoo was awarded a grant for encouraging family nature play and conservation education.  "Nature Play Begins at Your Zoo" is the name of the grant from the Association of Zoos & Aquariums

The Greenville Zoo was one of 30 grant recipients, this year receiving $5,000.  Over the past 4 years, the city’s zoo received a total of  $35,000 from this organization. Part of the reason why the Greenville Zoo does so well is for their programs including the Family Nature Club and their dedicated nature play space outside, but within the zoo. It’s all about getting kids to experience nature.
