*Guests
Some of our members want the flexibility to bring a guest with them on each visit - our solution is to offer a Guest option. Leave one of your membership cards blank and bring a guest with you on every visit. Please note that a separate physical guest card is not issued and that by leaving a name blank, our staff will know that you have chosen the guest option. This option is available for Dual, Family Plus, and Sustaining members only. Remember, a named card member must be present for your Guest to be able to enter the Zoo at no additional cost.

Do you have a caretaker?
If your nanny, caretaker, or another adult, visits the Zoo and their name does not appear on the membership card, the entire party - including children - will be required to pay for admission. We suggest that you name the caretaker as the third person at the Family Plus and/or Sustaining level. Membership cards are not transferable.
