Reid Park Zoo needs volunteers! Becoming a volunteer at Reid Park Zoo greatly benefits students. Many students chose to join our organization to fulfill volunteer hours, learn about the pressing dangers animals and the ecosystem face, as well as to improve their communication skills, and much more! The process requires an application and an in-person interview. If accepted, the teen will attend a required training session. It is a year long commitment, and those who participate are required to complete a minimum of 6 volunteer hours per month. Students will have the opportunity to bring out "information stations" which contain fun artifacts, such as feathers and fur, to teach zoo guests, participate in crafts and face painting with children, join in on special events, as well as attend special volunteer-only activities. If you are interested in volunteering or know anyone is, please have log onto reidparkzoo.org, click the "get involved" tab, and scroll down to "Teen Volunteer." We are currently accepting applications from now until March 31st. For any questions please contact Heather Devers heather.devers@tucsonaz.gov
