About the Artesian Alliance

Formed in 2019, The Artesian Alliance is a partnership between Chehaw Park & Zoo, the Flint RiverQuarium, and Thronateeska Heritage Center. The collaboration created by the partnership has already led to joint programmatic efforts, greater operating efficiencies and cost containment, and a more effective use of limited resources for the three organizations involved. The Artesian Alliance designation also paves the way for future joint staffing and programming, as well as memberships and fundraising. In short, we are all much stronger together than individually. Through the Artesian Alliance, the three venues look forward to both a re-energized base of support and a slate of new initiatives that will help lead the community into the future.
