Volunteers

WITH OVER 400 ACRES OF GREENSPACE, GARDENS, AND ATTRACTIONS, THERE’S NO SHORTAGE OF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES AT ASSINIBOINE PARK AND ZOO.

Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer.
   

The Assiniboine Park Conservancy celebrates our volunteers and all the contributions they make! In 2016, volunteers contributed over 38,000 hours of service in all areas of the Park and Zoo. Their gift of time has enriched the visitor experience and filled an important role within the organization. Currently we are looking for volunteers to join our team. 

Volunteers come from all walks of life and support a wide range of activities at Assiniboine Park and Zoo. Our goal is to provide volunteers with enriching and rewarding volunteer experiences and place them in positions that offer the best match for each volunteer’s unique skill set and schedule. Volunteers will learn new skills, meet new people, play an active role in the Assiniboine Park visitor experience, and contribute to the exciting growth at Assiniboine Park and Zoo.
