MAKe THE most of your membership

Thank you for being a Sacramento Zoo member! Access more resources below to make the most of your membership.

NOTE: Due to the zoo’s temporary closure in the spring of 2020, we have extended expiration dates all memberships that were active during the time to cover the closure period.

The Member & Visitor Services staff are here and happy to assist you; contact us at 916-808-5888 or

how to visit

Due to COVID-19 precautions, we have instituted enhanced protocols and procedures that strictly limit capacity. This requires everyone to reserve the day and time of their visit online prior to visiting the zoo. 

Before you can reserve your timed entry admission tickets you must have a login and password for the zoo’s website. Completing the process below in advance of reserving tickets will ensure a smooth process.

Step 1: Register for our website (if you have already registered for our website you can skip to step two).
Step 2: Check to make sure that your website registration is linked to your zoo membership.

Step 1: Register for our website:

  1. To make sure your website registration links to your zoo membership, you need the following information as it appears on your membership card: your name, address, phone number, and email. (Note that each named member may create their own login with their own email address so that they may log in independently of one another.)
  2. You will know that you have registered successfully when you receive a confirmation email

Step 2: Test your website registration:

  1. You need to test your website registration to make sure that it links to your zoo membership and that your membership is active.
  2. Make sure you are logged in to the website
    If you can add an attendee to your shopping cart for this test event, great, you are all set! Please do not click “add to cart”. It is not necessary to go through with this registration. It seems simple but if you are logged in and have the ability to add an attendee to this membership test then this really is the final step in the process.

Need assistance with this process? Call 916-808-5888 during regular business hours.

Once this process is complete, go the the Plan Your Visit page and scroll down to the orange “Buy Tickets” button to reserve your tickets for any open time slot.
