The Little Rock Zoo and the McLarty Automotive Group are proud to jointly announce their new partnership with a press conference to be held Tuesday, June 18, 2019, at 10 a.m. at the Zoo. The main aspects of the partnership are McLarty’s sponsorship of the Little Rock Zoo’s new McLarty Education Village and Garden and the Zoo’s Zoofari camps. As the McLarty group has become the official sponsor of both of these initiatives, they have shown their commitment to education, educational outreach, and community building.
The McLarty Education Village and Garden, located on the northeast corner of Zoo property is the site of daily summer Zoofari camps, and will soon be the site of a working vegetable garden. Summer 2019 is the inaugural usage of these two new buildings. They will house more than 75 kids each week who come to the Zoofari camps for summer educational enrichment activities.
