My family and I LOVE going to Zoo Boise! It's so nice to see all that they do for our community and how dedicated they are to conserving wildlife, especially in the Treasure Valley.

Zoo Boise is giving a $100,000 gift from the Zoo Boise conservation fund to help Table Rock restoration efforts after the Table Rock Fire last week.

The funds come from a portion of admission prices and proceeds from popular zoo attractions.

Complete restoration of the Table Rock Fire2,500 burned acres on Table Rock is expected to take several years, but officials say they hope to cure the burn mark within a year.
