The Hutchinson Zoo volunteer program aids in accomplishing the mission of the zoo by providing qualified volunteers who will enhance the work of the staff. By working with zoo staff, volunteers have the opportunity to help meet the existing and changing needs of the zoo and create community engagement. 

The Hutchinson Zoo provides a variety of volunteer opportunities - there is something for everyone! Volunteer jobs include running the gift shop, driving the zoo train, preparing diets for the zoo collection, assisting with wildlife rehabilitation, gardening, assisting zoo keepers in daily routines and projects, assisting with education programs, informally teaching guests, and helping with special projects and events. 

If you enjoy working with animals and/or children, the Hutchinson Zoo is looking for you! Volunteering at the Zoo is a great way to serve your community, engage in wildlife conservation, and help the zoo continue to grow and benefit generations to come.  For more information please contact us by email.

We also participate in the FrogWatch USA program; for more information about this opportunity, visit the FrogWatch tab here
