How Does It Work?

Gift Memberships are purchased as a blank certificate.

If you provide your address:
The blank certificate will be mailed to you. You can then fill in the recipient’s information, or gift it to them as a blank certificate for them to fill in themselves.

If you provide the recipient’s address:
A blank Gift Membership certificate will be mailed to them. They can then fill in their information to be redeemed.

How does the recipient redeem their Membership?
When the recipient is ready to begin using their Membership, they can bring in the completed certificate with them to their first Zoo visit and redeem the certificate at our front gates for an active Membership.

Note:The recipient’s Membership does not become active until the day they redeem their certificate. Their Membership will be valid for one full year from the date of redemption. This allows the gift recipient to decide when they would like to begin their year-long Membership.
