The Grow Wild Society is at the forefront of the evolution of the Zoo.

Your membership in the Grow Wild Society will give you a close partnership with the Zoo while supporting our vital mission and current programs. The Grow Wild Society encourages all members to become more involved with the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium, in the hopes that it will lead to greater support for our animals, conservation efforts, and education programs.
