The Micke Grove Zoo Education Department is hosting a Special Event Volunteer information meeting for individuals 11 years of age and older on Thursday, September 26 from 6:00PM-7:00PM at the Memorial Building in Micke Grove Regional Park. Potential volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian for the duration of the information meeting.
Special Event Volunteers assist zoo staff in planning and implementing various Micke Grove Zoo events and fundraisers such as HalloWILD and Zoo Lights. Event volunteers are tasked with responsibilities like decorating, event set-up and take-down, hosting games and crafts, or providing directions and excellent customer service to zoo guests. This position is ideal for those needing to complete academic community service requirements or would like to support Micke Grove Zoo without a long-term commitment.
Special Event Volunteers are critical to the success of the Zoo’s events and fundraisers, which help support its educational programs and the development of new exhibits. Ideal candidates are responsible, have a positive attitude, and support the overall mission of Micke Grove Zoo. Successful volunteers are acknowledged at the Zoo’s Annual Volunteer Appreciation Ceremony and awarded for their contributions to the organization.
Interested candidates are encouraged to visit the Micke Grove Zoo website, www.mgzoo.com, to download the Special Event Volunteer job description and the information meeting flyer. Specific questions can be answered by the Education Department at (209) 331-2138 or [email protected].
