Zoo Club

For any teen interested in volunteering and getting more involved with the wild world around them, Zoo Club is the perfect club for them! Zoo Club is a great opportunity for teens ages 12-17 years old to create friendships and socialize, learn how important animals, nature, and our environment is, how to conserve and educate others, and participate in a development volunteer program that will instill in them skills for the future. Zoo Club meetings are held monthly and are interactive, animal focused, and volunteer based. No two Zoo Club meetings are ever the same!
