Individual Volunteers

The Zoo periodically hosts volunteer information sessions to help you decide if the program is right for you. Register for our next session to learn about current opportunities, meet and greet with Zoo staff, get answers to all your questions, and more. Attending an information session is the most efficient way to join the Zoo’s volunteer program.

See a few of our current volunteer opportunities below, or contact with any questions.
