Friends of the Capron Park Zoo
We are a non-profit group incorporated in 1983 based in Attleboro, MA. For nearly 30 years, the Friends have supported the mission of Capron Park Zoo through fundraising endeavors and events. It continues to be the goal of the Friends to be a support group for the zoo. With the help of the community through fundraising, it is our task to further the mission of Capron Park Zoo in the areas of education, conservation and recreation.
We help raise funds to support and improve the zoo.
