The Utica Zoo reciprocates with approximately 150 other zoos. This agreement allows the members of reciprocal zoos to receive free admission to the Utica Zoo.  Due to constant changes in the reciprocal list, we recommend you call before you visit any zoo or aquarium to ensure they are still participating in the program. At the time we do not reciprocate with Rosamond Gifford Zoo.
