Family Volunteering Opportunities

Family Volunteering Adventures!

Do you need volunteer hours as an individual for a school requirment or just for fun? Are you a part of a school club or a Girl Scout or Boy Scout group that is seeking to volunteer? Well, you have found the right place!

There are lots of great opportunities to get involved at the Zoo! This new volunteer oppportunity provides parents and children, small groups of youth, and Scout groups the chance to get involved and obtain volunteer hours.

This opportunity is open to children up to age 14 with appropriate adult supervision.

These groups help in many different ways, including special event participation with Zoo BOO Bash and Hippity Hop, and quarterly Family Volunteer opportunities! These opportunities at the Zoo will include an hour or more of volunteering. Zoo admission is not provided following community service. Volunteering may include painting, crafting, coloring, building, and much more!
