Good for cardholder only

Note: The Zoo is open only on weekends during the winter (typically from December 1st to March 15th).
To prevent waiting in line and to process your membership pass more quickly, please fill out the appropriate form completely. Passcards can typically be made while you wait, or you can pick it up later.   If you had a membership the year before renewing we already have all of your information and will just need to print you a new card.

There are 2 ways to sign up for your membership cards.    

1.  Download the appropriate application form below and email it or drop it off.

2.  While visiting the zoo you can sign up in the gift shop.

A small fee will be charged for replacement passes. Stolen or lost passes should be reported to us. Some animals may not be available during inclement weather. The zoo reserves the right to close early when temperatures are below 50 degrees or due to heavy precipitation.

Membership FAQ

Can I loan my membership card to a friend?

No, your membership card is only valid for the person listed on the card. Membership cards contain your name and photograph and must be presented to enter the zoo or receive discounts.

Can I use my membership card if I forgot it at home?

Yes, but you will need to present your photo ID and receive a free one-time courtesy look up. The courtesy look up applies to zoo entry only; no member discounts can be applied without a card.

What if I lost my membership card?

You can present a photo id and request a replacement card for $5 at the Gift Shop.

Can I use my membership card at other zoos?

Yes, at participating zoos. Check the reciprocal page for a list of zoos that offer benefits for Brights Zoo members. The list continues to grow and will be updated throughout the year. Most participating zoos offer a 50% discount toward admission for our members.
