Volunteer recruitment is currently closed for general adult and teen positions. Please check back in September for volunteer opportunities for special events. 

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, or both! Experienced volunteers will have the first opportunity to volunteer at The Leaf, opening in late 2022. New volunteers must train with our team at the Zoo in 2022 in order to be considered for the first group of volunteers at The Leaf. 

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 and virtually adhering to COVID-19 protocols.
