For over four decades, the Grover Nelson Park Zoological Foundation has been a leader in building the Abilene Zoo into the place it is today. The foundation is the driving force in ensuring the growth of the zoo through capital campaigns leading to hallmark exhibits such as the Giraffe Safari and the newly-opened Madagascar exhibit. But just as importantly, the foundation is instrumental behind the scenes, growing matching funds to allow for an expansion of a first-class animal hospital, building rainy-day reserves to sustain the zoo during times of uncertainty, and creating an endowment to ensure the Abilene Zoo will thrive for generations to come. Thank you for your support in advancing the future of the Abilene Zoo.

This masterful country stylist from Houston, Texas has been thrilling audiences for more than 50 years. Gene’s very first radio single, the self-penned 'If It’s That Easy' was released in 1962. Although the song didn’t make any radio charts, it did start the career of the man now known as 'The Singer’s Singer.' Gene Watson’s tally of 75 charted titles, 23 top-10 hits and 6 number-one records has led to membership in the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame. Radio listeners are still transfixed whenever classics like 'Farewell Party,' 'Fourteen Carat Mind' or 'Love in the Hot Afternoon' are played. The depth of emotion in his singing, his brilliant phrasing, his jaw-dropping range and the power in the lyrics he chooses are all factors in the awe he inspires in both fans and his musical peers.
