About Volunteer at Potter Park Zoo!

4e60abd915cf3916e8a22d6e0ed845118895cb7a

Looking for a way to give back, and become more involved with the community? Join the Potter Park Zoo Volunteer Team!

Our volunteer program is incredibly flexible in regards to peoples’ schedules, as many of our volunteers are students, have full time jobs, families, etc.

We have no minimum amount of hours volunteers are required to accrue within a certain amount of time, and instead allow our volunteers to self-schedule based upon their preference of event and availability. We want all individuals to feel welcomed, and do not want the matter of scheduling to be a deterrent.



Here are some of the volunteer opportunities regularly available at the zoo:

Special Events
o Throughout the year, Potter Park Zoo hosts many private and public events including Boo at the Zoo and Wonderland of Lights. A wide variety of volunteers are needed for these, from greeters to craft assistants; face painters to storytellers; tickets takers to registration helpers, and many more!

Gardening/Grounds
o No matter what your gardening skills, we can use your help on our zoo grounds! Take on your own garden space, or simply help us weed and rake. You choose the task and your schedule.

Office/Clerical
o Our office staff sometimes need help preparing mailings, memberships or other clerical projects. If you can sort and shuffle, we can use your help!
