You could support a child’s love of animals at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, where the biggest animals (elephants) are on display within a short walking distance of flamingos and alligators. You could have a hand in a child seeing a show at the Columbus Children’s Theater, or enjoying the great programs the theater holds for children. These wishes go a long way to providing a wonderful life experience.

Children with green thumbs would love visiting the Franklin Park Conservatory with its botanical gardens, art and plant-based exhibitions and educational programs. And it’s easy to lose a child in the Center for Science and Industry.
