How do you want to help the Zoo?

Zoo Store Volunteer

Kids, toys, and smiles are what the Zoo Store is all about! If you enjoy helping children of all ages find their favorite souvenirs or a perfect plush pal to take home, volunteering in the Zoo Store is right for you. This opportunity has a flexible schedule for those who can give a lot of time or just a few hours. Zoo Store volunteers will use an easy-to-learn computer software and a bar code scanner.

Train Operator

All Aboard! Sign up NOW for your spot to be a Train Operator for the 2019 season. All training is provided. Operators must be aged 18 or older.

Carousel Operator

Is the carousel more your style?  Sign up to be an Operator today!  All training is provided. Operators must be aged 18 or older.

Garden Assistant

Do you have a green thumb? If you are interested in a regular volunteer schedule at the Zoo, the Gardening Assistant job may be for you!  Separate from the Adopt-a-Garden program, the Zoo regularly requires garden upkeep and sprucing up throughout the season.  Sign up today!

 

If you are interested instead in our Adopt-a-Garden program to have your own little spot, contact emily@saginawzoo.com or (989) 759-1408 ex 118 to get on our waiting list.  

 Commissary

Are you an aspiring chef or know your way around a kitchen?

animals’ tasty diets and help create fun and engaging
enrichment. Volunteer alongside our knowledgeable Animal
Care Team and be a part of something BIG!

Special Events

Did you have a great time at one of our special events?
You can help visitors create lasting memories and have fun
at the Zoo, too! Special Event Volunteers help activities run
smoothly on our busiest days and assist with community
outreaches. This opportunity is perfect for you if you would
like to volunteer on the weekends a couple times a month.

community’s wildlife habitats that make a global impact!
