We are currently recruiting volunteers for Boo at the Zoo! Click here to learn more. 

Every year volunteers contribute thousands of hours to the Park and Zoo. Volunteers come from all walks of life and enjoy rewarding volunteer experiences that recognize their unique skills and interests.

Volunteer at the Zoo, The Leaf, the Park or for special events! Volunteers have the choice to enjoy any or all of our venues and events. 

We offer flexible schedules and a welcoming environment that recognizes the essential role volunteers play in our organization. Comprehensive and ongoing training will take place on site.
