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 3 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. While we remain unsure of what our fall and winter may hold, we are thrilled to be able to once again open our doors and allow our members to enjoy the zoo and its new animals this summer!  

Please consider supporting our future by renewing your membership by July 5. In addition to the reciprocity benefits you receive at over 150 zoos and aquariums and 350 museums around the country, your membership provides discounts at our café and gift shop, and the gratification of supporting your local zoo. Memberships purchased by July 1st will also include the following perks valued at over $40 (Half the cost of a family membership!):

  • $10 off a Family, Grandparent or Conservationist Membership
  • A $10 gift certificate to a local restaurant
  • 2 free general admission passes (single use) to share with family or friends (good through 8/31/20)
