About

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Zoo New England's monthly Bottle and Can Drive raises money to support the Conservation Fund, which helps to protect endangered species in Massachusetts and around the world. In past years, the organization has earned between $3000 - $3500 a season during the drive, which is a great return on a relatively easy task.

WHAT WE'LL BE DOING:

Volunteers will be sorting and bagging redeemables that people bring to the zoo. Volunteers will also get a tour of the zoo while they are here.

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW:

It can be hard to predict how busy each Drive will be, and sometimes it gets hectic for an hour or so and then slows down. If it is a particularly slow day, there will be other tasks for volunteers so that they will always be productive and helping out.

WHERE TO MEET:

Volunteers should meet in the public parking lot of Stone Zoo, 149 Pond Street in Stoneham. The set-up area will be obvious, as the Drive is held in the lot itself. There will be someone there to meet them and orient them for the day. The Event Manager will contact all volunteers with more details as the event draws nearer.

ZOO NEW ENGLAND: Zoo New England's mission is to inspire people to protect and sustain the natural world for future generations by creating fun and engaging experiences that integrate wildlife and conservation programs, research, and education.
