How Do You Look in Yellow?
Volunteer Educators are an Important Part of the Sacramento Zoo Experience

If you’ve ever wanted to share your love of animals, now is the time.  The Sacramento Zoo is taking applications for the 2011 Docent training class until January 8, 2011. Zoo Docents are volunteer educators who have a love for wildlife and enjoy people.  Docents conduct tours and station talks at the Zoo.  With additional training, Docents can also participate in live animal presentations, both on and off Zoo grounds. 

An orientation meeting will be held on January 8, 2011 and the nine-week class will begin on January 15th.  This mini-course in Zoology runs every Saturday through mid-March.  For more information on becoming a Docent and to receive an application, please contact the Education Department at (916) 808-5889 or
