Our Corks for Conservation event highlights work being done around the world to save wildlife and wild places, in partnership with the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo. With over 25 conservation partners locally and across the globe, this event will directly support the efforts of the Zoo to preserve wildlife and wild places. Our hope is for each guest to leave the night inspired to care a little more about the world around them!

Guests travel through our social hour filling up on food and beverages at stations throughout the event space, then settle in for an amazing program filled with passion projects of our Zoo staff—sharing not only the financial investment in conservation, but also fieldwork. Guests are able to further the mission by taking part in the auction and making a gift in the appeal.

For information about tickets and sponsorship availability, please contact Erin Ward at or 260-427-6800 EXT. 152.
