Group Volunteering

Is your troop, club, or organization looking for a one-time community volunteer project? Idaho Falls Zoo offers one community cleanup day in early spring. We occasionally need groups to support other projects or special events.

Community Spring Clean-up Day

2024 Community Clean-up Day is scheduled (weather dependent!) for Saturday, April 13

In preparation for Opening Day on April 17, we ask for your help tidying zoo grounds during our annual Community Spring Clean-up on Saturday, April 13. 

From 9:00 A.M.-1:00 P.M. the zoo invites individuals, families, schools, and volunteer service groups to assist with grounds care projects including cleaning, raking, and mulching to get the zoo looking great for Opening Day. Groups are welcome to arrive any time during the event and help for as long as they like; however, most of the work is usually completed early in the day.

We ask all volunteers to bring their own yardwork supplies including work gloves, brooms, grass\rakes (no dirt rakes) large shovels, wheelbarrows, etc. Please wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Join us at the front gate of the zoo where a zoo employee will provide further instructions. 

Each participant must submit a City of Idaho Falls Volunteer Release of Liability form. To download the form click HERE or go to 

Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied throughout the event by a qualified adult representative of their group such as a family member, club leader, or organizational rep.

ALL participants must complete a City of Idaho Falls Volunteer Release of Liability form to participate, and youth forms must be completed and signed by a legal guardian. Please bring the completed form and provide it to zoo staff at the event. Unfortunately, anyone not providing a completed form at arrival will be unable to participate.
