We are happy to announce that the Zoo’s largest community event and fundraiser, Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular, is back for another season as a drive through for 2020!

More information on this year’s event can be found at our website – https://www.rwpzoo.org/jols.

If you are interested in volunteering for Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular, the Zoo is recruiting volunteers every day of the event, Monday-Sunday, with shifts in the evening from 5:15pm-11:00pm, September 30th-November 1st. Volunteer responsibilities include supporting the traffic queue of vehicles and providing general information such as answering questions and educating guests about the event. All volunteers will be positioned outdoors with limited and minimal direct exposure to guests, but direct access to staff. All volunteers must be 16+. Volunteers that are a part of our teen ZooCrew program do not need to be 16+.

As a thank you for volunteering, volunteers will be offered a complimentary drive through ticket to the Jack-o-Lantern Spectacular after completion of 5 shifts. If volunteers complete less than 5 shifts, they can request to receive a ticket for the Explore and Soar Zip-Ride. Even if you can volunteer for a shift or two, know that your support makes a difference, as the Zoo relies on hundreds of volunteers throughout the event. Your generosity during this time could not be more valuable or appreciated. If you would like to volunteer, please complete our survey - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/PumpkinVolunteer.

If you have any questions or would like to reach out to us directly please contact us at pumpkinvolunteer@rwpzoo.org or (401) 684-0037.

As always, thank you for your continued support of the zoo as we continue to be a space for the community, conservation, animal care, and education.

We hope to see you soon!
