The Zoo has several fun-filled special events throughout the year! Special Events would not be possible without the help and support from volunteers. Volunteer assistance is needed for Frogs and Fairytales, Breakfast with the Animals, Dreamnight, Zoobilation, Ice Cream Zoofari and Zoo Boo! It’s a great opportunity to gather a group together and volunteer for one of our exciting and unique events.
