Contact Yard

Contact Yard volunteers provide a positive, interactive experience between our guests and the Contact Yard animals. Greet guests, monitor the public and Contact Yard animals, instruct the public on how to properly interact with the animals, and get hands on experience with goats and sheep! Once you complete your short training session, you may volunteer as much as you like. Shifts begin at 10 a.m. and end at 2 p.m., or begin at 2 p.m. and end at 5 p.m. It is preferred for Contact Yard volunteers to have a regular reoccurring schedule.

As a volunteer, you are able to access VIC Net, an internet-based program where you can view upcoming events and sign up for activities. Once logged in, volunteers can read e-mail, open links to PDF documents like the Zoo Bites Newsletter, see upcoming events and view their hours to date and other information.
