Wildwood Zoological Society
  swan

The Wildwood Zoological Society was formed in 1972. Over the years, the Zoo Society has planned, funded, and provided volunteers for most of the programming and events that took place at the zoo. The Zoo Society sponsors several education programs that some years cost over $5,000. This includes the Spring Education Programs as well as the popular summer program, Wild Wednesdays. 

The Zoo Society has several major fundraisers per year to help raise money for the zoo. Tunes in the Zoo (June), Zoofest (June) and Trick-or-Treating (October) are some of the events where you can thank and support Zoo Society members.

The Wildwood Park Zoological Society works with the Parks and Recreation Department of the City of Marshfield to continue improvement and expansion of the zoo.  

All meetings are held in Room 108 of City Hall Plaza.  Meetings are usually held the 3rd Thursday of every month and are open to the public.
