Volunteer at a Special Event!
(All applicants must be at least 13 years of age)
We are currently at volunteer capacity for Wells Fargo ZooLight Safari. Please check the volunteer home page for additional volunteer opportunities!
Each year for Wells Fargo Boo at the Zoo and Wells Fargo ZooLight Safari, the Birmingham Zoo asks for volunteers to help make these events safe and exciting. Each event requires 50-100 volunteers per night to ensure the events run smoothly for all attending families and children.
During Wells Fargo Boo at the Zoo, there are several opportunities for volunteers including: assisting with a haunted house, managing games and candy stations, passing out maps, giving directions, helping load and unload the train, staffing train crossings for safety and much more.
Wells Fargo ZooLight Safari volunteers may be asked to help with a tractor-pulled hay ride, holiday crafts, games, story time, train rides and other entertaining activities.
For groups of 10 or more, please call 205-879-0409 to sign-up as a volunteer group.
