Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Lincoln Park Zoo! We are currently seeking volunteers for seasonal and year-round opportunities.
We will offer three Volunteer Information Sessions to provide details about all available volunteer roles. A limited number of 30-minute interview slots will be offered on Info Session dates as well. (Volunteers may interview on other dates as well.)
Volunteer Information Sessions
Saturday, March 5: 10–11 a.m.
Wednesday, March 9: 10–11 a.m.
Sunday, March 20: 10–11 a.m.
Please note: an RSVP is required to attend an Info Session and to schedule an interview. To RSVP, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your preferred date. Also, please fill out our online volunteer application prior to attending an Info Session. Volunteers who cannot attend a session are still welcome to schedule an interview on another date.

Help the Zoo Online
We are happy to offer another way to help the zoo. Lincoln Park Zoo’s Urban Wildlife Institute is seeking volunteers to help identify wildlife in their camera trap photos. You can help by going to www.chicagowildlifewatch.org and following the instructions on the website!
We are always accepting volunteers for our ongoing special events. If you’re interested in being added to our special events list, please let us know by emailing email@example.com.
