With your support, the Desert Dome Plaza can become Omaha’s family oasis.


Caring for our wonderful wild creatures is the top priority of Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, so our animals receive the vast majority of our financial resources. But we don't want to forget about our wonderful human creatures - and that's why we need your help.

When visitors first enter the Zoo, the first place they gather is the Desert Dome Plaza. With all the incredible, new exhibits at the Zoo, this important family gathering space deserves to look its best, too. We are asking for your donation to help us enhance and beautify the plaza — to truly make it bloom and be an oasis for families as they begin their zoo adventures. Please donate today!
