Access & Equity

We Want To Hear From You!

As part of our ongoing effort to form a better understanding of who is coming to the Zoo, and what barriers prevent people from accessing the Zoo, we teamed up with Dane County Parks to conduct an evaluation. With support from the Office of the Dane County Board, we began working with Keen Independent Research to conduct a full evaluation using a racial and social equity lens, and provide recommendations for strategies and actions to advance racial and social equity and access to Dane County Parks and Henry Vilas Zoo.

Como parte de este estudio, Keen Independent Research está solicitando la opinión y comentarios de los visitantes y no visitantes de los Parques y el Zoológico. Los resultados ayudarán a desarrollar recomendaciones que guíen al Condado a mejorar el acceso a sus instalaciones, terrenos, propiedades y programas, y que llegue a convertirse en un lugar más inclusivo, equitativo y racialmente justo para todos.
