Group Volunteering

The OKC Zoo depends on volunteer assistance for many projects. Our group volunteer program offers groups an opportunity to help keep our Zoo in top form. Our projects are designed to give your group a sense of ownership in the Zoo while building your team.
 

Program Information:


Zoo staff choose a project for your group based on the date/time you select and your group size. Please be aware that the OKC Zoo is not designated as a non-profit organization. We can accommodate groups of 3-30 participants per day. Your group may be divided into smaller projects, based on our project needs. Projects may include, but are not limited to:

  • Yard work and gardening - weeding, mulching, planting, laying sod, cutting cane, etc.

  • Facility or ride maintenance - painting or cleaning.

  • Special event preparations.

  • Trash cleanup or recycling projects.

  • Education projects - preparing crafts, resource management, or assisting in the ZooZeum.

Requirements:

  • Participants must be at least 18 years old. For safety, children cannot accompany adults.

  • All participants are required to sign a waiver of liability and provide an emergency contact.

  • We require at least 2 weeks' notice to schedule a project. NO EXCEPTIONS.

  • School groups are required to provide contact information for their faculty advisor.

  • All participants must arrive at the designated time and stay with the group for the duration of the shift. We cannot accommodate late-comers or individuals leaving early. Participants arriving more than 5 minutes after the designated time will not be allowed to volunteer.

  • All participants should dress for the weather in clothing that can dirty. Shoes must be closed-toe with a back and have good traction.
