A few hours per week
Long-Term (6 months-1 year)
National Zoological Park
3001 Connecticut Avenue, NW
The Smithsonian's National Zoo's Kids' Farm exhibit is a unique space within the Zoo, because it is home to domestic animals rather than exotic animals or wildlife. Volunteers will be trained to perform keeper aide tasks, such as preparing diets, cleaning enclosures and creating enrichment items. Additionally, unlike any other program at the Zoo, volunteers will also be trained in interpretation techniques, including interacting with the general public, giving public demonstrations and educating visitors about environmental issues.
Shifts are available daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Volunteers must be able to commit to at least one four-hour shift every other week for a minimum of one year.
