The family of T. Urling Walker donated $25,000 to the New York State Zoo at Thompson Park, zoo officials announced Wednesday.

According to the zoo, the money will be divided to give $15,000 to the zoo’s endowment at the Northern New York Community Foundation and $10,000 toward the Owl 500 Fund. The foundation will match the endowment gift, bringing the total value of that portion of the donation to $30,000.

The money to the owl fundraiser will help the zoo move forward with plans to build exhibits highlighting multiple owl species found in the state.
