DINO SQUAD-Volunteers

Do you love Dinosaurs?  The OKC Zoo is looking for Dino-enthusiasts to share their passion with Zoo guests. Help guests learn about the different Dinos, Zoo’s modern day Dinos and get hands-on with fossil casts. Not a Dino expert? That’s ok!  We will help give you the tools and training you need.

Help share how the OKC Zoo is helping current animal species from the brink of extinct and everyone can make a difference.  Help us stop extinction!
