Membership FAQ

Memberships are restricted to those adults named on the card. As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on membership and attendance to support our facility. Both adults, in the same household, must have their names listed on the card. We appreciate your understanding.

It will take approximately one week to receive, process, and send out your membership card. If you do not receive your membership 3 weeks after submitting the form, please call the membership coordinator at (607) 724-5461 ext. 231.

To purchase a membership as a gift, fill out the gift recipient information on the membership form. You have the option of having it sent to you or to the gift recipient directly.

Memberships are non-transferable and can only be used by the listed names on the card. As a non-profit organization, we rely on your support and we try very hard to keep our membership prices affordable for many in the community. Both adults listed on the card must reside in the same household.

To replace a lost card, please call the membership coordinator at (607) 724-5461 ext. 231. There will be a $5.00 card replacement fee.

When purchasing your membership, we ask for your email for many reasons. You will receive zoo updates about member appreciation events, upcoming special events and discounts, new animal arrivals, and much more. It also allows us to conserve paper and postage when it’s time for you to renew your membership!

To change your address on your membership, please call the membership coordinator at (607) 724-5461 ext. 231.

A portion of your membership cost is tax deductible. Please consult a tax professional for more information.

You can find our updated reciprocal list at the top of this page. We recommend you call the facility ahead of time to confirm details and conditions of admission.

To learn about the zoo and keep up with zoo news, please provide your email address when applying for a membership. This enables you to receive our zoo email newsletter with upcoming event information.
