Volunteers are the heart of our Zoo and have always played dominant roles throughout its history.
Inspired by Mr. Charles Paddock and his friends, our community has always answered the call of ongoing needs of the Zoo in the form of food supplies, construction materials, puppeteers, docents, gift shop volunteers, clerical assistance and financial support. These early benefactors understood the value and uniqueness of the Zoo for all Central Coast residents and visitors.
We are always looking for volunteers for our education programs, events, and office support. To become a volunteer please call 805-470-3182.
