The St. Louis Aquarium Foundation is fortunate to have worked with a number of organizations and individuals to begin our journey of water conservation and stewardship. We thank the following people and organizations for their help designing and creating content for the Conservation & Education Center exhibits and for their partnership with us in local water stewardship initiatives!

The Ocean Project

The Ocean Project focuses on advancing conservation in collaboration with aquariums, zoos, museums, youth, and many other partners. In addition, they host World Oceans Day, a day for people around our blue planet to celebrate and honor the ocean while bringing attention to the need to protect our oceans. The St. Louis Aquarium Foundation is proud to be a partner of The Ocean Project and a sponsor of World Oceans Day on June 8th.

earthday365’s mission is to empower individuals and organizations to create and celebrate a greener St. Louis – every day. They also host the annual St. Louis Earth Day Festival (currently rescheduled for Oct. 18, 2020 in Tower Grove Park).

St. Louis Cardinals

We partnered with the St. Louis Cardinals to collect the plastic bottles used in our plastic bottle sculpture in the Conservation & Education Center. The Cardinals value environmental stewardship, as evident in their own sustainability programs.

Thank you to the Missouri Botanical Garden and their Shaw Nature Reserve for helping us to design our Rain Garden, as well as for providing guidance on the best native plants to use in the Rain Garden, River Park, and other outdoor spaces.
