Adult Volunteer Opportunities
Thank you for your interest in volunteer opportunities with the Columbian Park Zoo. Volunteers provide valuable support and assistance to zoo staff, and have an integral role in the success of our many special events. You must be 18 years or older to apply.
Teens ages 14-17 that are interested in volunteering should check out our Zoo Teen Program!
Are you an energetic and committed individual who is looking to share your interest in animals with others? Volunteer Educators assist the Education Department by assisting with various learning experiences including animal encounters, group presentations and patron interactions throughout the zoo. We are looking for individuals who can make at least a year-long commitment.
Are you a social butterfly looking for an opportunity to work in a beautiful garden setting? Volunteers help in late May through early September.
Additional information for this opportunity will be available in the spring of 2019.
Would your company or organization like to spend a few hours helping the zoo? Select weekend dates are available in the spring and fall for groups of 15 individuals or fewer.
Call the Volunteer Coordinator at 765-807-1558 to discuss application requirements and to review available dates.
