Become a Docent at the Salisbury Zoo!

educating kids about owlsWant to be a Zoo volunteer?
Then become a Docent! Zoo volunteers have an interest in wild animals, a positive attitude, and a willingness to learn. No experience is necessary-we will teach you everything you need to know.

What do Zoo Volunteers do?
Volunteers help with education programs such as guided tours, live animal presentations, and school programs. Volunteers serve as on-site experts for our guests. They share their knowledge of animals, nature, and conservation with visitors. Volunteers help out with the Zoo’s special events, such as Halloween Happening, Earth Day and Critter Christmas. They have the opportunity to help with the care and handling of the Education Program Animal Collection. These animals are used in education programs at the Zoo, in schools, and at community events. Volunteers must complete a pre-requisite number of hours and attend extra training to be involved. Call 443-944-0636 for more information and to register for the training.

Docent Open House: February 16th  2pm-4pm

Santa needs your help! Because there are so many people on the nice list this year, Santa has decided to set up a workshop right here at the Salisbury Zoo! At this workshop you will be helping Santa create over a dozen different craft projects to five as gifts, decorate your home and spread Christmas cheer. Some of the craft projects are free and some require a small fee. Word is that Santa and Mrs. Claus are stopping by to see how operations are going. Children will be able to visit with Mr. and Mrs. Claus during the event. Don’t miss this fun filled opportunity for the whole family to get into the holiday spirit and to create special memories. There will be a craft fair held in conjunction with the workshop. Proceeds from the event benefit the Salisbury Zoo’s Education Department. Call 443-944-0636 for more information.
