To thank you for your continued support of the Potawatomi Zoo, the Potawatomi Zoological Society invites all of its members to join us for an evening of fun with family and friends at our annual Members' Picnic.  For three hours the Zoo is open to members only where guests can enjoy visiting their favorite Zoo friends, free train rides, food, and entertainment!

RSVP deadline for Members' Picnic is July 6th.

*On the day of Members' Picnic all guests will be asked to exit the Zoo at 5pm when the Zoo closes and re-enter at 5:30pm when the event begins.

We will be offering a 10% discount at the Congo Cafe and Chill Zone and a 25% discount at Jungle Gifts (excludes animal art and food items purchased from gift shop).

If you are a member and plan on attending please remember to bring your current membership card and a photo ID for entry into the picnic. Every adult named on a membership will be asked to show photo ID. 

*Your membership level determines the number of people admitted to the picnic.  You may bring non-member guests to the picnic, the cost is $5 per person, ages 3 and older, at the gate.  You must present your current membership card and a photo ID prior to entering the Zoo - please have these items ready for a quicker entry.
