Would you like to learn more about zoo volunteering? Great news! Attend one of two informational presentations for prospective volunteers on Tuesday, Feb. 11 OR Wednesday, Feb. 12 at 6 p.m. in the William J. Maeck Education Center located at the entrance of the Idaho Falls Zoo.

Applications to volunteer will be available starting Wednesday, Feb. 12 at the Idaho Falls Zoo’s website under the Get Involved tab.
