Quarters for Conservation


Quarters for Conservation



PARC has been selected as one of four programs featured in the Greenville Zoo's Quarters for Conservation program!

For those not familiar with this program, participating zoos give each person a token as they enter the zoo. Inside, there is a kiosk displaying brief descriptions of 3-5 conservation programs, and each zoo visitor can vote for a particular project by dropping his or her token into the well corresponding to the project they want to support. This allows $0.25 of every zoo entrance fee, plus a small portion of annual membership fees, to be put toward the Quarters for Conservation program. A portion of the funds raised in this effort goes back to the zoo's conservation programs, and the remainder is provided to the selected projects. PARC is honored to be among these selected projects at the Greenville Zoo!

PARC would like to thank Barbara Foster and the Greenville Zoo's Conservation and Research Committee for nominating and selecting our organization!
