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 at the zoo, 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!
