Did you know...?
Although the Zoo is open only part of the year, all of the animals stay
at the Zoo year-round.
We've premiered a new improvement and/or exhibit every year since 1997.
Your annual membership donation helps us keep up with the costs of running
the Zoo, which have increased with the fabulous growth we've accomplished.
These benefits are yours with a Zoo Membership!
- Unlimited admission and train and carousel rides for 12 months from time of purchase*
- Unlimited admission to over 150 other zoos – remember, some zoos are open year round, and you can get in at a discount or free.

Unless indicated, your membership will be available for you to pick up on your next visit. If you plan on visiting the Zoo within 2-3 weeks, we suggest you renew your membership at the admissions gate instead of renewing online. Renewing at the admission gate immediately provides you with a new temporary member card you can begin using that day.
