Stepping Into the Savannah

For over fifty-five years, the Greenville Zoo has been part of the Greenville community. Through the Greenville Zoo’s Stepping into the Savannah Brick Program, we are inviting the community to help us build for the future of the Greenville Zoo. 

Purchase an engraved brick to be used in the new Lion’s Den Courtyard. Recognize a special person in your life. Honor someone special. Cherish the memory of a loved one. Celebrate a special occasion. 

  • For $100 you can choose a message to be engraved on one of the 4”x8” bricks paving the courtyard of the new Lion’s Den. 
  • For $200 you can have text on a larger 8”x8” brick. 
  • For $250 you can also have a logo or child’s artwork engraved on a brick.

Your contribution will help us complete the construction of our new Lion’s Den and help to make the Greenville Zoo a better place for animals and our community. Your brick will become a part of Greenville Zoo’s history. All donations are tax-deductible.

To view renderings of the Lion's Den, please see our Capital Campaign page. For more information about the Stepping Into the Savannah or other recognition opportunities please contact Lydia Thomas at

Please note: The items pictured above are examples. The actual bricks may vary in appearance to complement the architectural design. These commemorative bricks will be set in a pattern determined by the Greenville Zoo. The bricks will not be installed until construction is nearing completion. Greenville Zoo reserves the right to deny any brick donation application, which deems to be inappropriate by virtue of the stated or implied message.

Artwork guidelines: All art should be created with a thick black marker on a white background. For engraving purposes, no intricate detail, no thin lines, no complicated sketches and no colored pictures can be accepted.
