EDUCATION/OUTREACH OPPORTUNITIES

Please note that all education volunteer positions require attendance at one of several information meetings. Applications will only be distributed at these meetings.

Long-term positions such as Zoo Crew and Wild Guides require applicants to participate in an interview and a four day training and TB tests and possible finger printing; short-term positions such as Camp Counselors and Special Event Volunteers require a brief one-day training.

High school students must either become a Zoo Crew member, Camp Counselor, Keeper Aide, or Special Event Volunteer in order to earn any community service hours. These positions require a special committment and training. There is no guarantee that these positions will be available at the student's time of need.

If you are looking for a community service project idea but cannot commit to any of our programs, please click here.

Information meetings, training dates, and registration information will be posted under each position as they become available, so check this site frequently. Members of the Micke Grove Zoological Society will receive announcements about these dates by newsletter.
