Zoo Crew Teen Volunteers

Zoo Crew

Be a Conservation Leader


Are you a teen wanting to find a fun way to spend your summer that will also make an impact on wildlife and our environment? 

Zoo Crew Teen Volunteers are a specially selected group of students who serve as conservation leaders by connecting guests with wildlife and conservation topics.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will not be hosting the Zoo Crew program for the summer of 2021.  Please be sure to check back in Spring 2022 for information about volunteer opportunities.


Our Zoo Crew volunteers help our guests connect to wildlife and learn about conservation topics by hosting activity stations throughout the Zoo during the summer. 

These volunteers will be using real animal artifacts and hands-on activities to help guests better understand animals and how they can help wildlife in their everyday lives.
