At ZooMontana, we can’t do what we do… without YOU!


Do you love the zoo?  Would you like to help make a difference?  ZooMontana is powered by committed, enthusiastic volunteers who work side by side with our staff in roles of all kinds to deliver strong customer service and behind the scenes support to create a welcoming and educational environment for our guests of all ages.

We will match your time commitment, talents, and interests with the Zoo’s needs to find the perfect fit.  Time commitment varies from regular, ongoing volunteers who serve 2-4 days per month or on a per-event basis for community and corporate volunteers.  We accept volunteers ages 12 and up.  (Volunteers under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult.)

Ongoing opportunities can include duties such as gardening, general grounds maintenance, helping keepers, and others.

Have questions?  Want to get started?  We can help with that!
