The Zoo is open with modifications in place to encourage physical distancing and reduce the risk of community spread of COVID-19. If you are looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity where you can spend time outdoors, we are currently accepting applications. 

In 2019, volunteers contributed over 65,000 hours of service at 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, comprehensive and ongoing training, and a welcoming environment that recognizes the essential role volunteers play in our organization.
