  • Greeting our visitors as they enter the Zoo and Museum.
  • Being a mascot, a Zoo docent, or an education program assistant. 
  • Handling the Zoo’s education animals like the Ball Python or Striped Skunk. 
  • Helping with special events like ZooBoo, Breakfast with Santa, and Zippity Zoo Day.
  • Delivering posters and flyers around the community.

To get involved in the Zoo’s Volunteer Program you must be at least 16 years old.  (Individuals age 12-15 may volunteer with a parent or legal guardian.)
