Volunteering during COVID

We are currently in need of volunteers for: Greeters/Guides and Carousel. Masks are required for guests, staff and volunteers while on grounds. All roles allow for social distancing when needed.

We do anticipate volunteer needs arising for a few special events and possibly some remote opportunities. So, even if the role you want isn’t currently available, we’d still love to hear from you! We’re always happy to give you more information and help you decide if volunteering at Henry Vilas Zoo is right for you. We can also include you on our volunteer email so you stay up-to-date on events, trainings, animal news and other volunteer opportunities. You are welcome to jump in when the timing is right for you

Volunteering Presentations

Are you part of a group that wants to know more about Zoo volunteering? Let us know! We can attend one of your group Zooms to talk about what it’s like being a volunteer at HVZ, the different roles we have available and how to get started. We can gear presentations to any age, and are happy to work with you to fit your scheduling needs.
