For the summer of 2021, we are looking to build a team of Discovery volunteers. These volunteers work with the Discovery Keepers to train, socialize, and showcase our small collection of outreach animals, from the snakes to the sugar gliders to the Solomon Island skink. Once trained, the Discovery Volunteers can help educate guests about our amazing animals on weekends, at events, and even help when the Education team goes on outreach missions!

Volunteers need to be aged 16 or older, and are required to put in 32 hours of training before handling animals on their own.

We also hope to start back up the monthly Landscape Volunteers in 2022. For this, we work closely with our neighbors, Zoo Area Progressive Partnership, and you can contact them to get on their email list.

Thank you for supporting YOUR Jackson Zoo!
