Do you have a passion for animals, wildlife, or conservation? Have you had the thought to get out of the house, meet new people and make a difference while you do it? If so, then education volunteering with the Elmwood Park Zoo may be for you! Education volunteers at the zoo are vital the spreading the zoo's mission to inspire active participation in conservation. Education volunteers go through a special orientation in order to learn about the zoo and our animals, and they take that information out into the zoo to deliver it straight to guests! There are many different ways to contribute from assisting with giraffe feeds, engaging guest in our barn to taking our extensive collection of "Biofacts" such as feathers, track impressions and replica animal bones into the zoo to give guest a hands-on experience. Education Volunteers also assist with educational crafts and games at the zoo, both every day and during special events! Opportunities are available both on weekdays and weekends. Schedules are flexible.
