Short-term volunteers age 14 and up have the opportunity to join the Docent Program, our only year-round volunteer program. Docents help out with a variety of activities around the Park including handling many of the education animals, leading Guided Tours, assisting with education classes and programs, helping with special events, assisting at Interactive Exhibits, and helping out with special projects.
Docents are able to set their own schedules by signing up for programs and activities that suit their interests and availability. Because Docents are able to help with so many exciting activities, we do require new Docents to attend a training class that meets one evening per week for 4 weeks. Training classes generally begin in February, April, June, August, and September, though exact dates may vary.
We would LOVE to have you join our volunteer team! Apply today!
