■ Members are required to show a photo I.D. upon entering the Zoo with their membership card and to reciprocating zoos . Members will not be allowed to enter the Zoo on their Friends card if no photo I.D. can be shown.
■ The reciprocal lists change annually, so please call the Friends Office and get a new list each year. Also, a family is defined differently at each zoo. Please check with the Zoo you are visiting before you visit to see what their policies are.
■ Membership cards cannot be used when the member is coming with a group who is seeking a group admission rate into the Zoo. A group is defined by the Jackson Zoo as 15 or more paying individuals; the group count does not include children 2 and under. Using a membership card when entering with a group can drop the number in the group to less than 15 paying individuals, therefore causing the group to have to pay full price.
■ Apply the cost of today's admission to an annual membership with today's receipt! Cost may only be applied if purchase is made during the same day of your visit.
■ Individual, Companion and Family membership levels receive one card per household.
■ Memberships are non-transferable
Thank you for your continued support and for your patience, while we work to Zoo It Better!
