Case Study: Friends of the Rosamond Gifford Zoo

Board and Staff Retreat


Mindflower Studio facilitated a board and staff retreat for the Rosamond Gifford Zoo in Syracuse, New York, with the goal of uniting to become "one zoo." Members from the Board of Directors, nonprofit staff, and county staff met to connect and further cultivate the vision for the Zoo's future.


In addition to facilitating the board and staff retreat, Abby Wilkymacky of Mindflower Studio worked with Friends of The Rosamond Gifford Zoo Executive Director, Carrie Large and Zoo Director, Ted Fox to craft a unified Visual Vision. The Visual Vision showcases Carrie and Ted's vision for the Zoo and provided a foundation for participants to provide feedback, new ideas, and fresh perspectives as they all work together to drive the organization forward. ​
