Membership has its benefits – especially when you upgrade to a higher level. In addition to the regular advantages of being a Zoo member, our Household Plus and Grandparent Plus levels include extra benefits like two free member-exclusive T-shirts, a $30 value. Members at these levels can attend ONE ESL presents Night at the Zoo for free and will have access to the A Step Into Africa construction site that night. Members and non-members are encouraged to attend any or all of these exciting evening events on May 26, June 23, July 21 or August 11 for a small fee; members at these higher levels will get in free on one night of their choice!
You may also consider upgrading to the Penguin Circle level. It includes all the benefits of Household Plus and Grandparent Plus mentioned above and extra benefits like free Zoo admission for two additional guests each Zoo visit. Members at this level are invited to both a Penguin Circle Morning Event in July as well as to private festivities on National Grandparents Day in September. They are also entitled to extra discounts on tickets to ZooBoo, our popular Halloween event.
Interested in a behind-the-scenes tour of the Zoo? Consider becoming a Special Friend level member and enjoy the opportunity for up to six people to get close to our popular animals. While enjoying all the benefits of our Penguin Circle level members, at this highest level your family would receive recognition in ZooNooz, our quarterly newsletter and much, much more. Please call (585) 336-7217 for information about this very special level of support.
Again, please consider joining or renewing at a higher level and take advantage of fantastic extra benefits!
