Zoo Looks For Volunteers

Posted: Updated:

Thedate has been set. May 3 will be the official opening day for theRoosevelt Park Zoo, but there is a lot of work to be done before then, and the zoo staff is looking for help.

The zoo is looking for volunteers to help them with some finishingtouches before opening day.  People have the chance to sign up for threevolunteer weekends in April. Jobs could include, raking, painting,organizing and even building. It's a chance tovolunteer for a good cause, and see some exotic animals in the process.

"As you look around the zoo there's very little snow, otherthan in show piles, for us to get ground cleanup done. Whereas last winter we were struggling, it was two weeks out from opening day and there wasstill snow everywhere. We scrambled a lot more last season.  Hopefully,this season we won't have to do that and have a little more time to rely on ourvolunteers to help us out," says Becky Zahn-Walcker a zoo keeper.

If you, your family or company areinterested in volunteering you can contact zoo staff at 857-4166.
