Volunteer at the Zoo

Volunteers are an integral part of our zoo family! Do you want to spend more time at the zoo? Do you love educating people about the wonders of nature and the animals that live around us? Do you love the idea of volunteering for a good cause?

We have many options for volunteers with different interests at America’s 5th Zoo!  To explore our current volunteer needs, click on the button below or you can contact Kathy Whyte at (607) 724-5461 x.330.

Volunteers under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and may not be suitable for certain volunteer opportunities.

Group Volunteers

(all ages, adult supervision required)

Is your organization looking for team building opportunities and a way to give back to the community? The Ross Park is a fun and unique place for your members to get their hands dirty for a good cause! Projects vary seasonally, but group volunteers are always appreciated during special events, and zoo clean up initiatives.

Interested groups should contact Kathy Whyte at 607-724-5461 ext. 504.
