Volunteer Sign Up For Wild Lights

What tasks do volunteers accomplish during Wild Lights? Volunteering for Wild Lights can involve helping guests with wayfinding, running educational games, assisting photo opportunities, managing props and many other tasks.  If any of the above sound interesting then consider signing up for an afternoon or even several!

Volunteers for special events are accepted as singles or small groups, as long as all volunteers are over the age of 18. Volunteering for events at Elmwood Park Zoo can be especially fun with a club, a small group of friends or group of coworkers, and is encouraged! Share the opportunity with friends or family who may also be interested in volunteering, and you help the zoo fulfill our needs!
