Volunteers

We are currently recruiting volunteers for our Adult Ambassador, Zoo Camp Crew, and Zoo Skits programs. More information and our online application forms can be found below.

In 2019, volunteers contributed over 65,000 hours of service at the Park and Zoo. Volunteers come from all walks of life and enjoy rewarding volunteer experiences that recognize their unique skills and interests. We offer flexible schedules, comprehensive and ongoing training, and a welcoming environment that recognizes the essential role volunteers play in our organization.

  • learn new skills

  • support a wide range of activities
  • contribute to the exciting growth at Assiniboine Park and Zoo

  • Saturday, March 7 (10:00 am - 11:30 am)
  • Monday, March 16 (1:00 pm - 2:30 pm)
