If you intend to visit the Zoo more than once a year, consider purchasing a Zoo membership, as you’ll cover the cost of membership within 2-3 visits, and get to enjoy all of the fun events coming up such as Boo at the Zoo, Wildlights, and more. Fall is a great time to visit the Zoo, as many animals are more active in the cooler weather.
