As most people know, the Jackson Zoo staff is still working on MANY projects as we look towards being fully operational as soon as possible. We are a very small staff and sometimes have to ask for help.
We currently have TWO PROJECTS that we need to do, and we are looking for volunteers for each:
CLEANING THE ASIAN GARDEN The Asian Garden is a beautiful but challenging area. This will be a fairly intensive Saturday morning, possibly even going into the afternoon. Not only does it need extensive weeding and trimming, but both fountains need to be cleaned and readied for repair.
*PROS NEEDED* RE-PERCHING ANIMAL EXHIBITS. This is a special call out for ADULTS AND YOUND ADULTS ONLY, specifically ones with carpentry, home improvement, and/or woodworking skills (chainsaw capabilities are needed by as many as possible). The animal residents will be kept in their night houses while Zoo Director and Keepers guide volunteers in cutting, placing, and affixing branches and other natural enrichment items in place within the enclosures. This project may need multiple days, and these volunteers would possible become a special crew working with the Director on similar projects throughout the year.
