Give a Gift of Zoo Membership – Options

Gift Memberships start immediately and are valid for 12 months from new membership purchase or from current membership expiration date. They are purchased on behalf of a specific named person(s) for a designated membership level. Purchase by calling (502) 459-2287by visiting the Zoo in person during regular Zoo hours or buying online. Only Gift Memberships purchased during the 2017 holiday promotion period Nov. 1 – Dec 31 will be mailed; otherwise, they can be picked up at the Zoo’s membership office.  Any special incentives are provided when the gift recipient makes their first visit to the Zoo to complete the registration process.

E-Gift Memberships are NEW in 2017.  An E-Gift Membership is similar to a generic gift card but it is purchased online for a specific membership price level (e.g. Family Membership).  You can forward your E-Gift PDF to the recipient via email or print it out. An E-Gift recipient redeems their E-Gift Membership at the Zoo on their first visit, receives permanent cards and has 12 months to enjoy the membership.  When you purchase an E-Gift Membership, you’re allowing your recipient to decide when their membership starts. Hint:  for a sweeter gift yet, add some additional funds to your E-Gift Membership to also enable some purchases of food, attractions and gifts.
