Maryland Zoo



New and Renewal Memberships

The Zoo is a non-profit organization and depends on its members and donors to preserve our mission of conservation and education, so thank you for taking the steps to become a part of something wild and wonderful. Whether you are becoming a brand new member of the Zoo and have yet to experience all The Maryland Zoo has to offer, or are a long term member, we thank you greatly for your support. 


To thank our long term supporters, we offer a discount to members renewing before their current membership expires. By renewing prior to a membership expiration date, members not only aid in both the Zoos mission of becoming more green by helping reduce paper waste and ink use, but also help our budget by reducing costs associated with mailings.

To take advantage of this offer, please refer to your renewal notice and then click on the link below. If you have any questions or would like to renew by phone, please call 443-552-5281, our membership agents are standing by to assist you 10:00 a.m. to 4:00PM daily.

If your membership has already expired, or you would like to forgo the $5.00 member discount, you may continue the membership purchase process below.
