EdZoo Crew members must be between the ages of 14 and 17 and be willing to interact with zoo guests and to answer questions and direct people. They must have an interest in biology, environmental science, zoos or conservation and a willingness to share with the public information in these areas.

Interested teens must complete an EdZoo Crew volunteer application and return it to the zoo by Friday, May 4.

Volunteers will receive training to communicate their knowledge of animals and plants to zoo guests and children participating in the zoo’s educational programs.

Crew members’ duties include assisting with at least one week-long Zoo Venture children’s program; volunteering at least eight days in the children’s zoo; volunteering for three special events in one calendar year; assisting with classes, Zoo Ventures, Scout programs, family programs and birthday parties; and assisting with craft, education and activity booths.
