Event Description:

Join us for "Build Your Best Life", a networking social with Onboard Fort Wayne sponsored by Lincoln Financial Group, Visit Fort Wayne, and the Fort Wayne Children's Zoo!

This adults-only event is open to local summer interns and new residents of Allen County, OFW Navigators, GFW Inc. members, and anyone who wants to learn more about the program. The evening will include hors d'oeuvres and cash bar with a welcome from our sponsors, a short update on the program, connection activity, and open networking.

The Fort Wayne Children's Zoo is a nationally ranked zoo, offering families 40 acres of animals, rides and beautifully landscaped grounds. Four distinct sections offer rides and hands-on experiences around every turn:

  • The African Journey features lions, hyenas, zebra and more! Highlights include hand-feeding giraffes, zooming in on ostrich and wildebeest with the Savannah Viewers, and tickling your toes in the treetops as you glide 38 feet into the air on the Sky Safari!
  • The Australian Adventure features the Reef, eastern grey kangaroos, dingoes and more! Here you can pet a stingray, ride a surfboard, ride in a dugout canoe around Crocodile Creek, and explore the outback, mate!
  • The Asian Trek offers a cool escape amidst jungle life. Come nose-to-nose with tigers, orangutans, and reptiles after visiting Dr. Dr. Diversity's Research Station near the Tree Top Trail. The Endangered Species Carousel also depicts endangered animals from Southeast Asia.
  • The Central Zoo features Monkey Island, goat feeding and brushing at the Indiana Family Farm, and an interactive home for our River Otters and Sea Lions! You could also climb aboard the Z.O.&O. Railroad before departing.
The best part?! They say the "zoo comes alive after five", so many of the animals will be out and active during the cooler, summer evening hours before saying goodnight.

Tickets are $30.00/person, which includes admission for 1 adult, ride pass, giraffe feeding token, food and non-alcoholic beverages ($50+ total value). Please note if you will need dietary accommodations in your registration. NOTE: Payment is considered your reservation and is non-refundable.
