If you are 18 years of age and older, you can volunteer in a variety of areas within the zoo. Become an interpretive volunteer, volunteer in the Education Department, help out at the Overlook Restaurant or landscape team, or volunteer within our administrative offices. For those 18 years of age or older, they can also volunteer as a Keeper helper or as part of the Zoo security team.
It is required for adults to fill out both forms to be considered.
Perhaps you're interested in more of a short-term volunteering schedule. Special Events are a great time to "try out" volunteering for the zoo. Volunteers need little to no training for these events and generally assist experienced volunteers at game, craft, or concession stations. Times and tasks vary depending on the event. Minimum age is 10 for most activities, and individuals 10-12 years old must be accompanied by an adult volunteer at all times.
If you have any questions about our Volunteer Opportunities at Rolling Hills Zoo, feel free to give us a call at 785-827-9488 ext. 122, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
