The Zoo relies on volunteers to support our staff and mission of connecting people to each other and the natural world to promote understanding, appreciation, and conservation. Whether you are helping in education, special events, or animal care, volunteers make an impact every day. If you are looking for an incredibly rewarding opportunity, you have come to the right place!
Our longest-running volunteer program, Zoo Docents are dedicated volunteers who serve as educators and interpreters at animal habitats throughout the Zoo. In addition, they provide tours and assist with a variety of educational programs both at the Zoo and out in the local community all year long.
