After months of receiving, sifting, and voting on submissions of photographs and artwork from the community, the N.E.W. Zoological Society, in partnership with the NEW Zoo & Adventure Park and Capital Credit Union, is excited to announce that the ​Feast (of Art!) for the Beasts 2021 Calendars​ are now on sale.

The Feast (of Art!) for the Beasts 2021 Calendars feature a colorful collection of photographs and artwork that represent not only the Zoo’s animals, but members of our community in Northeastern Wisconsin and some of the cherished, life-long memories made here at the NEW Zoo.

This fundraising raffle calendar was created this year to support the N.E.W. Zoological Society and the NEW Zoo after the cancellation of important annual events. The fundraiser is critical to the success of the Society and the Zoo itself, to support the Zoo’s mission to connect our community with wildlife and nature. We’re grateful for the support of our generous sponsors, for the many individuals who submitted such amazing photos and artwork for use in the calendar, and for the individuals (like you!)who purchase calendars and participate in the raffle drawings.

Raffle Drawings

Each calendar comes with a raffle form for ​entry into a monthly drawing for $500​. Drawings will take place (live, on Facebook @newzoosociety) on the third Monday of each month, from January to December 2021.
