ZooTEENS assist Friends of the Zoo’s Education Department in several capacities. ZooTEENS are trained as volunteer teachers to share their knowledge of the natural world through the use of biofacts and up-close animal encounters. As volunteer teachers, ZooTEENS assist education staff with summer ZEBRA classes. ZooTEENS may also assist the education zookeeper with husbandry duties and other zookeepers with behavioral observations.
Because of the number of volunteers currently involved in the ZooTEENS program, we will not be accepting applications for the 2015 season.
