Zoo Friends

Volunteer and make a difference

Our Zoo Friends Volunteer Program is for all individuals ages 18 and older. This new volunteer program offers opportunities to volunteer for special projects at the zoo. Unlike the Zoo Crew program, there is no hour or year requirement to join the program.

Opportunities include assisting with special events, such as Zoo Boo, Breakfast with the Animals, Zoo Grooves, and Zoovies. There are also opportunities to create enrichment items for Animal Services and help with horticulture projects on grounds. There are several opportunities each month to volunteer.

This program does not have any positions that work directly with animals.

We are not currently accepting any volunteer applications.
Please check back in the fall for more opportunities.


We do not accept individuals seeking court-ordered service hours and at this time we cannot accept international applicants.
