L.A. Zoo Docent Informational Meeting
July 20, 2019 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am
Do you love animals? Like working with children? Looking for a rewarding volunteer opportunity? Why not become a volunteer Docent at the L.A. Zoo!
Docents are the L.A. Zoo’s ambassadors, enlightening the public on conservation, preservation, and research efforts. From leading educational Zoo tours to participating in community outreach programs, the duties that our Docents participate in are as varied as the volunteers themselves. If you love learning, animals, and sharing what you know with others, this is the volunteer program for you!
