Note for out of town purchasers. If you live in a community that has its own zoo, we strongly encourage you to support your local zoo or aquarium by purchasing a membership to your local facility. When you purchase a Dakota Zoo membership and use it to attend your local zoo, you not only deprive your zoo of vital operating funds, but you also stand to miss out on members only benefits and events, and run the risk that your zoo may revise its reciprocal policy.
Dakota Zoo memberships are a donation in support of the Dakota Zoological Society. Reciprocal privileges are a voluntary agreement between zoos and are subject to change without notice. Changes in reciprocal policy made by other zoos do not constitute grounds for a refund or adjustment on your Dakota Zoo membership.
Please support your local zoo!
