is it? A season pass? Free admission? Discounts on purchases? Newsletter
subscriptions? Exclusive access? Yes and no. While zoo membership comes with
many amazing benefits it is much more than a free pass! Members become part of
the zoo family and are the zoo’s core support system. Funds raised through the
membership program are vital to the daily operations of the zoo. They provide
support for education, conservation, outreach and animal care, just to mention
is a place to discover and explore, offering wholesome recreation to children
and families throughout our region. Zoo members are part of the zoo community.
With free admission for a year, members can visit as often as they like, as
long as they like. They can stay for a half hour to go for a walk and visit
their favorite animal or make a day trip out of the visit and watch all the daily
animal enrichments! Members also are the first to be invited to or notified
about upcoming events, activities, projects and new animals or exhibits.
levels are flexible enough to fit any family’s needs and you can easily add an
additional person to any membership to include a babysitter or grandparent!
