Support the Zoo

Want to help, but not ready for a regular commitment? You can make a meaningful contribution by giving a few hours at a special event. Meet great people with similar interests, enjoy a fabulous work environment, and support the Zoo!

Currently, volunteers are needed to help with:

  • Special Events – Join us for special events like Bunny BonanZOO, ZooBOOO! or Brew at the Zoo. Volunteers make the events special by playing games and making crafts with our guests, providing directions and information, wearing our mascot costumes, and much more.
  • Mascots – We always need volunteers to be our Zoo mascots, Sphen the penguin and Rita the giraffe!
