On the first Saturday of each month (except November), Members can enter the Zoo one hour before opening to the general public. Enjoy cooler weather and see the keepers prepare enrichment and animal areas all around the zoo.
Each month, a different Meet the Keeper Talk (Presented by Phillips 66) is featured at 8:30 a.m. exclusively for Zoo members. Hear from one of our Zoo’s experts and gain professional insight about the featured animals. Learn from the best in the field about what it really takes to care for the diverse animals that call the Zoo home!
This event is always FREE for Zoo Members, and there’s no need to RSVP – just show up and enjoy!

Zoobilee is a Zoo-wide annual bash to celebrate and thank our membership. It is typically held on two evenings in the late spring, when we close the zoo early for non-members. In addition to having the zoo open just for members, there’s tons of fun to be had, including activities and special treats.
Zoobilee 2017 was April 6th and 7th.
