Become a volunteer at Assiniboine Park & Zoo! Applications are now open. 

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.

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.
