You won’t have to give up much of the money you’ve squirreled away in order to become a member of the Lake Superior Zoo. Family and Grandparent memberships are just $90. You read that right – just $90.

Our members are the heart of our zoo without which we cannot survive!

The amount of unwavering support, compassion, and understanding displayed by our members over the past few months has been inspiring, and deeply appreciated by our entire zoo team – It’s what has kept us going!

We are excited about the future of the zoo in our community, but we need your continued support to help us make that future a reality as we continue to navigate through these challenging and uncertain times.

BONUS… As a member of the Lake Superior Zoological Society, you’ll have a warm and fuzzy feeling knowing that you’re helping to ensure that the region has this incredible resource for generations to come!
