Featured Members: The Wegman Family

We love our Members. Their incredible support allows us to make a difference to animals both locally and all over the world. This month, we’re spotlighting a family that deserves recognition. We’re thrilled to introduce you to July’s Featured Members: The Wegman Family.

We reached out to The Wegman Family (John & Brandyne) to share a few words about being Zoo Members their first year.

Brandyne says, “We are member at the Houston Zoo because my daughter loves to go and look at the animals! She also has to ride the carousel every time we go. She rides it at least three to four times.

This is our first year to have a membership. Each time we go we bring along friends and family to join in on the fun. We recently brought my nephew who is from New York to the zoo and he was amazed when he went into the reptile house!

We enjoy the extra activities there is to do at the Zoo. We can’t wait to go to the Zoo Lights during Christmas time. It is so magical and is something the whole family can do together! We also go to Zoo Boo in October. My daughter likes to get the candy and play the games in the pumpkin patch at the Zoo.

When we go to the Zoo, we pack some snacks for the kids and watch as everyone has a great time. We go to the zoo about once every couple of months during the school year. Since I’m a teacher, I have summers off and we make the Zoo a weekly trip.  There is so much to do and see at the Zoo it is definitely worth going frequently!”

From all of us here at the Houston Zoo, we want to say thank you to John and all of our Zoo Members. As a Houston Zoo Member, your support truly makes an impact on the growth of our zoo and our conservation efforts. THANKS!
