Rodney Forristall—Bequest

Rodney ForristallRodney Forristall loves being outdoors at the Minnesota Zoo, and he visits often to walk the Northern Trail, see the bird show, and enjoy lunch at Russia's Grizzly Coast. He purchased his first Zoo membership when he retired from Honeywell in 1992, and his involvement has grown over the years—inspired in part by his love of the Wells Fargo Family Farm, which brings back childhood memories of his grandparents' farm.

Rodney contributes loyally to the Zoo Fund, regularly attends donor events, sends fun animals sponsorship packages as gifts for family members, and even joined the Circle of Life society by naming the Minnesota Zoo as a beneficiary in his will. The Zoo is grateful for Rodney's long-term commitment, which helps ensure we'll have the resources to further our mission for many years to come.
