Zoo Membership Options

The Zoo relies on membership fees, among other things, to help fund daily animal care, keep facilities running and pay their dedicated staff. In addition to having all-you-can-visit access, your Capron Park Zoo membership includes reciprocal benefits at FOUR other Massachusetts zoos and museums (Boston Museum of Science, Buttonwoods, Franklin Park. Stone Zoo) and over 100 other venues across the U.S., Canada and Mexico.  Learn about reciprocal benefits here. 

It’s easy to become a Zoo member or renew your current membership! Simply select one of the following options and submit your order online below through the Friends of Capron Park Zoo or order by form on the Zoo’s site here.

Once your order is processed, you will receive either a new member packet or a new membership card in the mail. If you are purchasing a membership as a gift, please be sure to specify who you are purchasing the membership for.
