Membership Levels

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 $80. You read that right – just $80.

In addition to our benefits, check out these added perks of being a zoo member!

  • Each June we throw a “by invitation only” M.A.D. Safari party for our members. Our members enjoy free entertainment, top-notch food vendors, tours of our Willard Munger Animal Care Center (normally closed to the public), a new animal enrichment every 20 minutes, and more!
  • Our members enjoy free admission to the Easter EGG-stravaganza!
  • Zoo members receive generous discounts on educational classes, zoo camps and birthday parties. You can save $20 on the birthday party alone!
  • When you visit, you’ll enjoy 10% off your purchases in the Tiger’s Paw Gift Shop and Safari Café. Plus, you’re welcome to use a stroller free of charge (limited to one per visit and availability).

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!
