The Idaho Falls Zoo needs YOU! Adult volunteers are essential to the zoo. They assist with conservation presentations and education programs, special events, animal care, grounds and exhibit maintenance, gardening and more.
Would you like to learn more about zoo volunteering? Great news! An informational presentation for prospective volunteers will be held on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:00 p.m. in Room 2 at the Idaho Falls Library, 457 W. Broadway.
Applications are now available at the Idaho Falls Zoo’s website under the Get Involved tab. Please email completed applications to [email protected] or drop by and see us at the zoo’s administrative office between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Applications for adult volunteers (ages 18+) are due March 1, 2018.
Once accepted, all new volunteers will undergo a background check and a series of training programs. Adult volunteers are required to become members of the Zoological Society, purchase a uniform shirt and may be required to submit medical information. Program fees are approximately $50.
