Membership

Your membership matters!

When you walk the path of your zoo and see Asian elephant Samudra joyfully swimming in Elephant Lands, or chimpanzee Leah foraging for her favorite snacks near the waterfall that runs through Primate Forest, you'll know that you're helping these remarkable animals thrive! Your membership directly supports the expert care of more than 2,000 animals at the Oregon Zoo. You are also helping to sustain conservation efforts around the world and right here in the Pacific Northwest. From critically endangered California condors to endangered native butterflies and pygmy rabbits, members make amazing work for the animals possible. 

An Oregon Zoo membership is your best value for year-round fun. You can enjoy the zoo at your convenience, whether for the day, an afternoon, or even an hour. With a membership, it's all up to you! Whether you're thinking of starting your membership, ready to renew or interested in upgrading, we're here to help.

Please contact us at membership@oregonzoo.org or call 503-505-5493 if you have questions or want to chat about how to start your Membership.

Give the gift of membership

There are three ways to give the gift of membership!

  • Purchase an electronic gift card online (recommended). You can include a special message, and the card can be emailed to you or the recipient, or both! The membership will not start until your gift recipient is ready to redeem their gift card! The membership will be valid for a full year from the date the gift card is redeemed.
  • Buy a gift card that can be mailed to you or your gift recipient! It comes in a special holder that is perfect for gift giving. Additional postal tracking fees apply. Purchase one online here or by phone (503-505-5493).
  • Renew the membership for your recipient. The membership will be extended by one full year. This option is not recommended if you wish the membership to be a surprise or if you do not have the current member number or contact information for each named adult. Consider buying a gift card instead!
