Purchase a Membership

Adopt an Animal
This is a fun and unique way to support the Zoo's animal conservation efforts and create a special bond with one of your favorite animals. As part of the adoption program you will receive a certificate of adoption, special photo and fact sheet about your adopted animal, and your name displayed by the adopted animal throughout the Zoo season.

Host an Event
The Zoo offers a natural serene escape for special gatherings, and is a great place for private and corporate outings. Our staff will assist you in making your day, dinner, meeting or outing spectacular and memorable.
