The Green Bay Packers Foundation is helping advance the nature-education center project at Bruemmer Park Zoo in Kewaunee. The Zoological Society of Kewaunee County received a $7,000 grant from the foundation. That's helping kick off a $1.5-million fundraising drive for the nature-education center. Dave Myers, Kewaunee County Promotions and Recreation Director, says that will build upon on-going restoration efforts that have helped attract more visitors.
The Bruemmer Park Zoo opened in 1936 with a number of birds and wildlife that are native to Wisconsin, plus some exotic species like monkeys.
