Horticulture Volunteers and Partners
We rely on the assistance of talented and knowledgeable volunteers and partners to keep the Zoo in bloom.
Over 40 volunteers grace the Zoo's grounds to share their time and talents. People interested in volunteering can call (757) 441-2374, ext. 225 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. For a copy of our volunteer application, CLICK HERE.
