Join the community wall of names and carve your memories in stone! For only $100, you can personalize a slate tile for yourself, your family, a special friend or an organization important to you. Funds raised through this program directly support the Zoo. Tiles will be installed on the outside of the new elephant and rhino barn in Encounter Africa.

Tile Details:

  • Each tile is 5 high by 5.5 wide.
  • There are 12 letters and spaces on two lines, for a total of 24 letters and spaces.
  • You can choose what animal is engraved on your tile: African lion, meerkat, rhino or elephant!
  • The first installation is scheduled for late Summer/early Fall 2014.
