Bowyer Farm The Cincinnati Zoo has been dedicated to sustainability not only on-grounds within its Avondale location, but at its off-grounds property as well. In 1995, a 529 acre farm called Bowyer Farm was willed to the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden with the guideline that it could never be developed unless it is to further the mission of the Zoo. Since then, the property has grown to 600+ acres, and is connecting with the Zoo’s mission of Adventure, Conservation, Education and Community in various ways. Anyone wishing to volunteer for the Bowyer Farm Wetland project, please contact Brian Jorg at [email protected]. Please include any special abilities, such as planting/gardening, birding, carpentry (able to construct bird boxes), etc.
