Idaho Falls Zoo is excited to announce that Wednesday, April 13 will be the opening day for the 2022 season! In preparation, zoo staff is asking for your help to tidy up the zoo grounds.
On Saturday, April 9, the zoo will host the annual Clean-up Day from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. and invites individuals, families, schools, and volunteer service groups to assist with a variety of projects including cleaning, raking, and mulching to get the zoo ready for opening day. Groups are welcome to come any time during the event and help as long as they like; however, most of the work will likely be completed early in the day.
Volunteers are asked to bring their own supplies including work gloves, brooms, grass (not dirt) rakes, large shovels and wheelbarrows, as well as wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Join us at the front gate of the zoo where a zoo employee will provide further instructions.
Each volunteer must submit a City of Idaho Falls Volunteer Release of Liability form. To download the form click HERE or go to https://www.idahofallsidaho.gov/DocumentCenter/View/3359/2016-Group-VOLUNTEER-Waiver-Form?bidId=.
Volunteers under the age of 18 must be part of a group such as a family, club or organization and a City of Idaho Falls Volunteer Release of Liability form must be completed and signed by a legal guardian. Please bring the completed form and provide it to zoo staff on April 3.
Qualified adult leaders or supervisors must remain with all youth and service groups from their respective organizations at all times in the zoo.
