A North Carolina Zoo Society Zookeeper Membership provides free admission to the North Carolina Zoo for the members of a family who share the same household, as well as other benefits (click here to review all membership benefits).
The free admission covers two adults and their minor children (those younger than 18). Zookeeper Members may also bring two guests for free on each visit to the North Carolina Zoo. Zookeeper Members also receive a decorative NC Zoo Society license plate.
