Early Bird Member Access

We HERD you loud and clear! You want additional opportunities for exclusive access to the Zoo animals you love. That’s why we are excited to announce our new benefit just for FONZ members: the Early Bird Member Access series.

On the second Saturday of each month* from March through September, FONZ members will enjoy exclusive early access to one of our exhibits. The series kicks off March 11 at the Small Mammal House, where members will gain entry at 8:30 a.m. and have exclusive viewing of armadillos, fennec foxes, naked mole rats, and many more cute and cuddly animals—and interpreters will be on hand to explain the animals’ behavior.

This series is free and exclusive to FONZ members. Please bring your current FONZ membership card with matching photo ID.
