Our Volunteer Opportunities
Want to know more?
Come to an information session where we will tell you about all our volunteer opportunities, requirements, training, etc. Our next sessions are on Sunday, June 18th at 2 pm, Sunday, July 16th at 2 pm, and Sunday, August 20th at 2 pm. We meet in the upper level of the Zoo’s Administration Building – the big red brick building with the green awning out in the Park. RSVP's although helpful are not mandatory and can be made to (616) 336-4317, firstname.lastname@example.org. We are not able to take new animal care volunteers for summer time only, please see the Animal Care page for more details.
Attending an information session is the first step to becoming a volunteer! You will also be asked to fill in and submit an online application, interview with the volunteer manager, successfully complete the required background checks and attend the necessary training session(s).
