Good Zoo at Oglebay Volunteer Opportunities

Teen volunteers at the Good Zoo

Volunteers share what they learn about wildlife to zoo visitors and even use live animals and artifacts to educate others

“Volunteer at the WILDEST place in town!” said Vickie Markey-Tekely, Curator of Education at the Good Zoo.  “We are currently looking for teen and adult volunteers at the zoo.”

 

Volunteers assist with summer camps, birthday parties, sleepovers and other education programs. Volunteers also share what they learn about wildlife by talking with visitors at zoo exhibits and even use live animals and artifacts to educate others.

 

Teen volunteers must be in the 7th grade or above.  Applications are available on the Oglebay website at www.oglebay-resort.com/goodzoo/Teen_Volunteer_Application.pdf or call the zoo education office at 304-243-4068. The Teen Volunteer Application deadline is Monday, January 9, 2012.

 

Adult volunteer training is held periodically throughout the year.  To receive an application or more information for the adult volunteer program, call 304-243-4033 or e-mail docents@oglebay-resort.com.
