Take Your Place in History
The ZooWalk is a special part of the Zoo. It begins to the right of the entrance to the main exhibit building, where paver stones are inscribed with individual messages.

You may have a person or milestone to remember, honor or highlight; or perhaps you would like a message about nature and wildlife. Perhaps your business might wish to invest in a paver stone.

Pavers are designed to become a lasting part of the Zoo and are seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. They make wonderful gifts. What could be more appropriate than a paver at the Staten Island Zoo where preservation is our mission?
Pave the Way… to a bright Zoo future and Express Yourself

Each paver can accept a maximum of three lines of 13 units each. When filling out the form you must allow one box for each letter, number, punctuation mark, heart symbol and space between words. Fill out the boxes exactly the way you wish to inscribe a paver and please write clearly.

Print out this form and send it to Zoo with check, cash or credit card information. Applications may be returned if the proposed text does not meet the standards to be observed by a New York City public facility. Applicants will have an opportunity to revise proposed text if applications are returned.
Upon receipt of your application you will receive confirmation of the order. If the order is a gift, the recipient will be notified as well. When the stone arrives at the Zoo, the maintenance department adds it to the “Zoo Walk”. Postcards go out to notify you, and any gift recipient, that the stone is in the ground. Each postcard is good for one free admission to the Zoo to see the stone.

Invest in the Zoo’s Future

Your investment in a paver helps maintain programs and exhibits designed to promote appreciation for wildlife and environmental conservation.
Family or individual pavers are $100 each ($50 is tax deductible).
Corporations, organizations and businesses contribute $200 per paver ($150 is tax deductible).
Paver stones are guaranteed for five years against wear and weather. Pavers installed in 1991, when the Paver Program first began, are still in excellent condition.
