Should that phase close with no successful candidate emerging, we will then open the position to the public. At that time, the open position will be posted on the website until the position is filled.

You may submit your resume for any position at any time. Resumes will be kept on file for one year.

Virtual Field Trips

Education is key to our mission.  We enjoy teaching “kids” of all ages!  Our field trips, both virtual and onsite, are ideal for groups of kids.  Our “Kid for a Day” Adult Camp provides a unique learning opportunity while allowing adults to channel their inner child.  While all of these opportunities are structured differently, in the end we want everyone to walk away knowing more about the animals we care for and what they can do to help protect them.
