The Idaho Falls Zoo needs YOU, even when we're closed to the public in fall and winter. Adult volunteers are essential to the zoo and we are seeking people to help with zoomobiles (off-site presentations at schools), animal care, and fall and winter grounds and exhibit maintenance.
Applications are now available at the Idaho Falls Zoo’s website under the Get Involved tab. Please email completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org or drop by and see us at the zoo’s administrative office between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Applications for adult volunteers (ages 18+) must be received by August 27, 2018.
All prospective zoo volunteers must be able to work independently, undergo an interview, background check, and if selected a series of training programs. Adult volunteers must become members of the Zoological Society, purchase a uniform shirt, and may be required to submit medical information. The approximate program fees annually are $50.
For questions, contact Megan Donovan, volunteer coordinator at (208) 612-8453 or email@example.com.
Media Note: For more information or to schedule an interview with zoo staff, contact Public Information Officer, Bud Cranor.
