Member Appreciation Days this December!

December is for members! Who says the fun stops the minute summer ends? Winter can be a wonderful time to visit, when the crowds are thinner and some of the animals are more active. In fact, Zoo Society members make up roughly 30% of all Zoo visitors throughout the year, and that percentage increases during fall and winter. Visiting just twice each year pays for a membership, which allows you to stay for an hour or a day.


To thank you for being a Zoo Society member, we are hosting Member Appreciation Days presented by PNC throughout December. Members will receive added discounts, fun freebies, giveaways and more. Look below for a printable calendar of everything going on for members in December.

Member discounts:

  • Members receive a discount on photos with Santa (Saturdays and Sundays December 1-16 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.)
