We have partnered with Restaurant Lento for a new, socially-distant, fundraising dinner!

You’ll enjoy an exclusive three-course dinner from Lento, all while supporting education and conservation programming at the Zoo and in our community.

Two nights, two menus: Both focused on sustainable, farm-to-table dining, including invasive species. Your dinner includes two signature cocktails, mocktails or wine.

Plus, with every dinner purchase, you’ll be entered to win one of three blockbuster prizes:

  • Exclusive tour of the Zoo with the Zoo Director
  • Wildest Dinner Party  – A lavish catered dinner party for 6 at the Zoo after hours
  • A three-course dinner with wine for four at Lento

Every order comes with a signature Seneca Park Zoo Society flash drive with videos, images, and info on how YOU can live a more sustainable life, thwart invasive species, and make a difference for wildlife right here in our region.

Do good while eating well!

$125 per person.

Dinner pickup is at Lento (274 N. Goodman) in timed windows from 4:30 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
