Staff, volunteers and the animals cannot wait to welcome you back into the Zoo! However, we have made a few modifications for everyone’s safety that may make your next Zoo visit a little different. Take a look at what you can expect on your next Zoo visit.

Some amenities and exhibits will be temporarily closed, including the World of Reptiles, ZooFarm, Enrichment Playground and Water Plaza. Keeper Chats, ZooLive! Stage presentations and other animal encounters are cancelled.


Make your adventure last all year. Members receive free admission to the Zoo, discounts at our gift shop and restaurant, invitations to exclusive events and much more. Best of all, a portion of your membership helps support our more than 700 animal inhabitants through the conservation fund.
