Dakota Zoo Volunteers

 

This program is comprised of men and women ages 18 and up who assist with educational programs, visitors, and events at the Zoo.

 

Activities include:

  • Educate Zoo visitors about a variety of animals and nature.

  • Develop and present programs and events which raise funds for the educational programs.

  • Assist with events and camps.

  • Assist with training Junior Docents during animal close-ups.

  • And much, much more!

     

 

Membership

Being a volunteer is simple, fun, and the hours are flexible.  Volunteers must have a current Dakota Zoo Membership to participate.

The Zoo relies heavily on the volunteer efforts of many generous people.
