Volunteers make Zoo events possible!

  • Provide a friendly welcome to our guests!
  • Be part of a fun team of volunteers that make it all happen
  • Help raise money to keep your Zoo strong!

Volunteer one time only or become a regular member of the Zoo event crew. Flexibility is key, in terms of schedule and your willingness to help where needed. Roles vary depending on the event, but possibilities include bartending, checking IDs, operating the Train/Carousel (pre-training required), Goat Yard attendant, registration, amusements like bounce house, face painting, ticket sales, gate greeting, etc.

Right now, we're recruiting for Zoo Run Run (9/24 plus preparation days the week prior), Halloween at the Zoo (10/29 plus preparation days), and Zoo Lights (11/24 - 1/1 - Thursdays through Sundays plus 12/26 and 12/27 and three special events throughout that timeframe).

Orientation & pre-training not required (except Train/Carousel), but we encourage attendance at an orientation if you're planning to assist at multiple events. Teams are welcome, with team size dependent on the event.
