We’re counting down the days until the opening of the A Step Into Africa Exhibit on May 17th. Three African lions and exciting interactive areas will be unveiled and families, like yours, will be reintroduced to our beloved African elephants and troop of olive baboons.
Join or rejoin the Zoo now through May 31st and you’ll enjoy 13 months of membership for the price of 12 months. We’re enhancing your family’s Zoo experience, but we’re keeping membership dues the same in 2012. What a great value! The Member Express Check-In benefit makes this special offer even more appealing, since we anticipate large and enthusiastic crowds this summer. For new members or the dedicated families who renew each year, this is a reminder for employees and retirees to check our Web site for a list of companies that support the Zoo and to see if you’re eligible for $5 or $10 off!
Watch for a new insert in the Sunday, May 6th issue of the Democrat & Chronicle that includes specifics about our various levels and an easy step-by-step application form. It also features photos of lions, new exhibit areas and this year’s Summer Programs schedule. You may also call the Member Office at (585) 336-7212, charge online or stop at the Zoo’s Front Gate to take advantage of this special today.
Our Penguin Circle level members are invited to an exclusive evening preview of A Step Into Africa on May 15th, so you may want to consider joining or upgrading at that higher level. Membership is a unique gift for Mom or Grandma on Mother’s Day, as well. Whatever you decide is right for your family, Zoo membership is the best way to be ready for the unveiling of lions. And your family will benefit all year long!
