The North Alabama Zoological Society Membership program is a special community created for those that have an earnest interest in seeing a zoo and aquarium in North Alabama happen quickly. The proceeds from your membership goes to help further our missions in education, conservation, and most definitely creating a zoo and aquarium. We thank you for your generosity and "Welcome to NALZS!"
Rules and Eligibility
