The NC Zoo Society offers three types of memberships. One-Year Memberships and Two-Year Memberships offer individuals and families free admission to the Zoo for a period of one or two years respectively, as well as additional benefits:

  • Free or half-priced admission to 150 zoos and aquariums including Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park and the North Carolina aquariums (see current list of partner zoos);
  • Free subscription to Alive magazine;
  • Access to the Zoo Society's members-only picnic decks;
  • Invitations to members-only events and previews;
  • Discount on Society behind-the-scenes tours, veterinary camps and field research camps.

Lifelong Memberships offer even more benefits, such as invitations to member events and special gifts; a description of those benefits is available on the NC Zoo Society's website.

Finally, Corporate Memberships provide a venue for businesses to invest in the cultural values served by the North Carolina Zoo. In return for their investments, businesses gain visibility and recognition for supporting the Zoo's cultural resources and receive Zoo admission passes and discounts. A review of Corporate Membership benefits is available here.
