FoBP’s mission is to preserve the legacy of the once famous “Benson’s Wild Animal Farm” by renovating the Elephant Barn at Benson Park, into a museum which will house memorabilia and provide educational opportunities to the community. FoBP will accomplish this mission through volunteerism, fundraising, and the promotion of Benson Park.
