Utica Zoo Memberships

3/31/20 Update

As you are aware, the Utica Zoo is temporarily closed but we are looking to the future and to seeing you when the Zoo reopens. Our members are vital to the Utica Zoo and provide the necessary operating support needed to care for the animals that call the zoo home. During this time you can be certain the dedicated Utica Zoo animal care and facility staff are taking great care of the zoo animals and maintaining zoo grounds.  We appreciate your support and consider you a part of the Utica Zoo family.  Understanding our temporary closure diminishes the duration of time our current members can utilize their membership; we are offering an extension to your membership expiration date equal to the amount of time we are closed (rounded up to a full month) upon request once we reopen. All new members have the opportunity to purchase their membership today and either have their membership expire in one year, or one year from when we reopen.

Although we are temporarily closed, the Utica Zoo team is developing new, online programs to enable you to enjoy the Utica Zoo from home. We have launched our new “Uti-kaZoo: Utica Zoo Kid’s Academy Zoo” to bring educational videos, activities, and crafts directly to you! Be sure to follow along on Facebook throughout the week for photos and videos of all your favorite animals, plus updates about happenings at the Zoo. If you would like to make a donation to help us provide the support and necessary care for our animals during this time, please visitwww.uticazoo.org/emergencyfund . Please feel free to contact us at info@uticazoo.org or call (315) 738-0472 (phone messages are checked remotely Monday through Friday). If you have any other questions, please check our FAQ below.
