Enhanced Benefits for 2015
Membership benefits are one of the ways we show our appreciation for our members and help you have even more fun at the zoo! In 2014, we added tons of new benefits, and in 2015 there are even more.
Both the Sustaining ($100) level and the Steward ($250) level have been enhanced!
In 2015 the Patron($150) membership level is being phased out. We hope our Patron members will choose another membership level and continue supporting the zoo! Our members at all levels are greatly appreciated.
As a community-supported zoo, the Henry Vilas Zoo needs YOU to keep going strong.
