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.
