Would your organization like to volunteer as a group to assist the zoo with a large project? It is a great way to give back to the community as well as serve as an excellent exercise in team building. If you are interested in a group project please contact our volunteer coordinator at 775-677-1101 or
Have some Community Service to do? We have opportunities to get community service hours daily. There are some things to know. Start time for Community Service workers is 8AM. We ask each worker to be prepared to complete at least 4 hours of work in a day, although you may work up to 8. All workers are asked to report at the Zoo by 8am ready to work, in clothes that have no inappropriate images or vulgarity. Wear something you don't mind getting dirty. Closed toed shoes are required. No tank tops or shorts. If working during the winter please be prepared to be out in the cold. Bring sunscreen, and any food or drinks you will need for the day.
