Volunteer Groups - Ages 16 years and older
Done-In-a-Day – special half-day project assignments for corporate groups or clubs often include helping with administrative tasks, making toys, organizing a fundraiser, deep cleaning, gardening, special projects or events. Time permitting we provide a quick tour and a hello to some of our animals. Most often done-in-a-day opportunities do not include direct animal care or handling. The maximum number of people for these opportunities is 15. Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate larger numbers.
Please email our Volunteer Coordinator, Robin Coleman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
