Membership Benefits and How to Join

Zoo Overnight: Buzz ‘n’ Snooze

Family Overnights are back with brand new adventures! Spend the night at the Zoo.

Back for its second year running, join us for a wild night at the Zoo and get the buzz on the fascinating world of pollinators! Many animals – such as lemurs, bats, ladybugs, and bees – help plants complete their life cycle by moving pollen from one plant to another. This is a very important process if you like chocolate, fruits, or ice cream!

Celebrate these miracle workers and discover how you can help provide important habitats for many species right in your own backyard!

Evening snack, a light breakfast, and next-day admission are included. We will be camping indoors in our Brown Education Center!
