Fort Wayne Children's Zoo Home
With prolonged road construction happening on Wells Street, we recommend beginning your Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo adventure on Sherman Boulevard until construction is finished.


The Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo welcomes volunteers of all ages and appreciates the unique talents, knowledge, and enthusiasm that volunteers contribute to our organization.

Volunteers enhance the guest experience, assist in zoo operations, and help further the zoo’s mission through their service. We are committed to excellent support and training for the volunteer program.

Combine your love of animals and people by volunteering!

In appreciation for our Volunteers’ contributions to the Zoo, we offer:

A discount at the Wild Things Gift Shop
Monthly educational meetings
Volunteer newsletter
Professional recommendation for a job well done
Special recognition events
