Zoo Lights Volunteering

Thank you for your help! All Zoo Lights volunteer spots have been filled.

However, we will certainly be in need of on-call volunteers in the event that someone is unable to make it for their shift. To get on the on-call list and stay up-to-date with future HVZ volunteer opportunities, you can fill out an interest form at: https://www.henryvilaszoo.gov/volunteer/volunteer-form/.

Thank you again!


We are proud to be one of only a few admission-free, community-supported zoos across the country. We are dedicated to exceptional animal care and conserving wildlife through local engagement and global partnerships.


Thank you to our generous sponsors!
