Volunteer Opportunities FAQ
  • How old do you have to be to volunteer at the zoo? 
    • You must be at least 16 years old to volunteer without an adult. 
    • Children ages 12-15 may volunteer with a responsible adult (over the age of 18). 
  • Can I get court-ordered community service hours at the zoo? 
    • No. All volunteers must pass a criminal background check to be considered. 
  • I need community service hours for school, what can I do? 
    • In most cases, the zoo is unable to accommodate requests for short-term volunteer assignments with the exception of volunteers for special events. 
    • If you have a group in need of hours, however, contact Jessica to schedule a group service project.
