These 100% recycled benches can be engraved with two-inch high recessed letters filled with contrasting paint to make your message stand out even from a distance.

A memorial tree provides a lasting tribute to remember special people or special occasions. Trees are a living gift that adds beauty to the Zoo and offers shelter, comfort and pleasure for years to come.

A variety of tree species are available for purchase. When you choose to designate a memorial tree, you will receive the following:

  • A living legacy that will provide beauty and comfort to the community
  • A tree identification plaque displayed at the tree location
  • Tree Legacy certificate suitable for framing

$2,000:  Purchase a new tree to be planted in the Little Rock Zoo

$1,000:  Adopt a mature, existing tree in the Little Rock Zoo

To purchase a memorial tree, contact our Development Department at 501.661.7208
All proceeds benefit the Little Rock Zoo and the Zoo's Tree Legacy Program.

Because trees are living specimens, the Little Rock Zoo will guarantee a replacement or substitute tree if your designated tree dies or has to be removed within five (5) years of the purchase date.

Support the Little Rock Zoo’s mission of conservation and education while celebrating someone special with a memorial brick, bench, or tree.
