What Membership Means

We do not charge admission to the David Traylor Zoo of Emporia, but membership fees help with animal purchases, holiday lights, library materials, support of education programs and new and continued maintenance of exhibits. Another benefit of an EFOZ membership is reciprocation with several other zoos nationwide. They may offer free or reduced admission, free parking, discounts etc. Our offer is for a 25% discount on merchandise.

As a member of the Emporia Friends of the Zoo, reciprocal benefits are available to you.
