The Assiniboine Park Conservancy (APC) is seeking 150 volunteers to fill a variety of roles in the Park and Zoo as the busy summer season approaches. With more than 300 acres of gardens, attractions and the world-class Assiniboine Park Zoo, there are volunteer opportunities to suit a variety of skill sets while giving each volunteer a meaningful experience. “Park and Zoo volunteers help with a wide range of activities year-round and play an essential role in the Assiniboine Park and Zoo visitor experience,” said Shaun Leonoff, APC Advisor, Volunteer Resources. “If you love the outdoors, wildlife and engaging with people, I encourage you to apply to our program today.” Volunteer positions are open to anyone aged 16 years or older and offer a variety of commitment levels. New this year is the position of Zoo Camp Crew.
