All memberships at Wildlife Prairie Park are good for a year (12 consecutive months) from the date of purchase. For example, if you purchased a membership on 8/2/2014, ¬†your membership would not expire until 8/1/2015.
Your Wildlife Prairie Park membership comes standard with general, free, unlimited Park admission for the length of the membership. (Please note that this does not include free admission to our special events UNLESS otherwise advertised for a specific event). Your membership also grants you a 10% discount on food, at gift shops, and on lodging accommodations. You also get a subscription to our monthly eNewsletter. Other benefits such as special event incentives are announced upon event descriptions.
When you receive your membership packet, you will receive membership cards (if you renew, please let us know if you are in need of new cards), train tickets, and guest passes (all memberships except the Member Plus 3 receive a set number of guest passes).
The month prior to expiration, you will receive a letter in the mail saying thank you for your membership with us this past year. The letter will say when your membership expires, will come with a form to fill out to renew, and will include a self-addressed return envelope. If you do not renew with this renewal notice, you will receive an email renewal notice, and finally in the month your membership expires you will receive a phone call asking if you intend to renew your membership.
You can purchase your Wildlife Prairie Park membership by mailing us a check with a membership form indicating which membership you are interested in purchasing.
