Benches & Plaques


Placing a plaque on a bench at the Virginia Zoo is a thoughtful and distinctive way to recognize a special person. For a contribution of $500 or more, a plaque, customized according to the donor’s instructions, can be placed on a bench on Zoo grounds. Benches already placed on Zoo grounds are available for a $500 or $1,000 donation depending on type of bench. New benches, for select locations only, are available for a donation of $1,500 or more.
