Roosevelt Park Zoo's Mission Statement The mission of Roosevelt Park Zoo is to provide an enjoyable recreational and educational experience for the residents and visitors of our community and region. We strive to promote wildlife understanding and conservation through public education and maintenance of high quality exhibits for our living collection. ( Approved June 2001 ) The Roosevelt Park Zoo was established in 1920 with the first animal being a male bison from Montana. The following year a bear den and zoological building were added to the zoo. During the 1940s through the 1960s, the zoo animal population greatly increased and the area started to look like a zoo. The flood of '69 caused every bird and animal to be moved from the zoo which led to the redesign of the zoo grounds. The foot bridge, a feline house, and a new bear den were constructed. Throughout the following years to the present, additions of new animals, new exhibits and the participation in the Special Survival Program have greatly enhanced the zoo.

The Greater Minot Zoological Society is proud to be affiliated with the Minot Area Community Foundation. Please Consult your financial advisor or call the foundation for details.
