Member News & Events

Lion Cub Member Previews–SOLD OUT!

Thank you for your interest in meeting the lion cubs on September 6 and 7.  The member previews at 8:30 a.m. have sold out.  Be sure to visit the cubs beginning at 9:30 a.m. each day, or enjoy meeting them among fewer crowds during our next Member Morning Stroll on September 27!

We ask that you keep the following in mind when visiting the cubs:

  • Zoo staff will be on hand to advise you of viewing hints and guidelines. 
  • Mother and cubs are just getting used to their outdoor surroundings, so they may find it more comfortable to rest inside or behind the landscape.
  • Due to space limitations, viewing times may be limited to accommodate all registered members.
  • This will be the cubs' first interaction with crowds.  At the discretion of their keepers, the family may move inside at any time.  We appreciate your understanding!

Please bring your membership card, photo ID, and registration confirmation (printed or accessible on phone) with you on the day of your registration.
