Gift cards are easy!

Want to give the gift of membership? Send your loved one a gift card! That way they can customize their membership to fit their unique family. If they're already members, your generous gift card will let them renew at their same level or update their membership options with what works best for them. Plus, gift cards can also be used on grounds at either ZooStore and at certain food service locations, and they never expire!

Get started by looking at our Annual Pass and Discovery Passport membership prices and benefits below, then choose whether you'd like to send your gift card electronically or through the mail.

Please note: All memberships start immediately upon purchase.


Or, you can give a membership directly.

If you know exactly what type of membership your loved one needs, and you don't want to send a gift card, you can purchase the membership for them directly. (New memberships begin at time of purchase. Existing memberships will be extended one year beyond the original expiration date.)
