Bruemmer family continues zoo partnership

Over 90 years after Kewaunee County Judge Louis Bruemmer had a park named after him, his family continues to help fund his legacy.


Steve Bruemmer announced back in February he would donate $100,000 to a new pheasant exhibit at the park’s zoo if it is matched by the Kewaunee County Board and the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County. The Bruemmer family has been strong supporters of the zoo over the years, including an additional $20,000 to purchase life-size statues of an elephant, lion, rhinoceros, and zebra for a future African animal sculpture exhibit.


Zoological Society of Kewaunee County President Pam Zander says she is happy the family has been so supportive of their mission as the popularity of the park and its zoo rises with each exhibit they have been able to replace.

The Kewaunee County Board approved its $100,000 match earlier this year, so now it’s the Zoological Society of Kewaunee County’s turn. The organization will host a cookout fundraiser on June 5th to help get them closer to their own $100,000 goal.
