Adults age 18 and older who want to connect kids and animals, support family fun, and inspire concern for nature are invited to volunteer at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.
Volunteers work in multiple areas of the zoo and support guest service, education programming, and provide operational support.
Anyone age 18 or older can apply to the adult volunteer program.
New volunteers are required to take five hours of training, which begins on April 14, 2016. Class schedules, an online volunteer application, and a recommendation form are available online.
“Volunteers play an important role in connecting our 550,000 annual guests to our animals,” explains Kathy Terlizzi, the zoo’s volunteer manager, “Last year, 426 zoo volunteers donated nearly 38,000 hours. That represents an eleven percent increase over the year before!”
Interested people may contact Kathy Terlizzi at 260-427-6828 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
The zoo opens for the 2016 season on Saturday, April 23.
