City, Society & Board of Directors

The Arrowhead Zoological Society, Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 corporation that operates under the name Lake Superior Zoological Society. The Society is made up of people who subscribe to the organization by way of an annual membership. The Society is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Day-to-day operations such as animal management, veterinary services, administration, marketing, membership, education, and guest services are executed by dedicated staff who are supervised by management level staff. They, in turn, report to the Chief Executive Officer.

A formal agreement between the City of Duluth (which owns the facility) and the Lake Superior Zoological Society gives the Society the responsibility for all zoo operations, including the funding of zoo operations and improvements.
