Give the Gift of a Family Membership to the Zoo this Christmas

Next month we will be celebrating Christmas, but as the news reminds us each day, this year we have shipping delays which mean what would otherwise be full shelves in the stores are increasingly bare. Plus, the items which are in stores are more expensive. So, if you are looking for a gift idea which will make it possible for you to give a gift to the ones you love which they will love, but which does not rely upon being able to find things in a store (or on-line), consider a more "non-traditional" gift such as, a family membership/pass to your local zoo.

We are blessed where I live to have an amazing local zoo - the John Ball Zoo in Grand Rapids Michigan. At the John Ball Zoo you will be able to see Tigers, visit the Van Andel Living Shores Aquarium, discover animals from Africa (including lions), South America, North America, reptiles, amphibians, wallabies, a terrific petting zoo, and so much more! Plus they have seasonal special events - such as IllumiZoo Wild Hues, and BRICKLIVE Supersized, and the opportunity for special experiences - such as the zip line, camel rides, sky trails rope course, Funicular ride, and more! There is always something fantastic to see and experience at the John Ball Zoo!

Giving the gift of a Family membership for Christmas means not only will the ones you love get to open a fantastic gift (wrap up a package or packages with photos of animals, or tiny stuffed animals) but they will also receive the even better gift of experiences and creating memories as they are able to go to the zoo for a year! This is a gift they will never forget.
