Zoo Weekend- Volunteer Opportunity
Zoo Weekend is Saturday and Sunday, March 23-24 and we still need volunteers to help make this the greatest Zoo Weekend ever. It takes approximately 100 volunteers per shift to have a successful and exciting event. Volunteers can be students*, corporate teams, church groups, civic groups, families and just anyone who wants to give back to the community in a fun, exciting and outdoor environment.
Shifts are from 8:00am-2:00pm and 1:00pm-6:30pm each day. Volunteers may serve one or multiple shifts, but they are expected to commit to serving the full duration of their shift(s).
Volunteers assist in a variety roles such as running children's games, taking ride and attraction tickets, selling extra game tickets, assisting the petting zoo, cleaning around the zoo and just helping make sure each and every guest has a wonderful time. Assignments may be requested but are NOT guaranteed as volunteers will be placed where there is the greatest need.
We are excited that Subway is our volunteer sponsor this year. With their support we will be provide lunch and drinks to all volunteers.
Please consider giving a few hours of your time to help make this annual event a continued success. Zoo Weekend is our largest fund raiser of the year and without your help the Zoo could not continue to grow, expand our animal collection or provide a fun, family attraction for over 200,000 people per year.
If you have any questions concerning volunteering during Zoo Weekend, please contact the Zoo at (334) 625-4900.
