Volunteer News | Fall 2013

Volunteers mean a great deal to the success of the Zoo. Thanks to the following groups for lending a helping hand to keep our Zoo beautiful.

Mercy Academy

Mercy Academy freshmen assisted our Horticulture Department on April 25 and 26 by sprucing up the Butterfly Garden. They removed limbs, added mulch and had no problem digging in and getting their hands dirty for a great cause.


Employees from the Walgreens on Poplar Level grabbed their brushes and painted the fence at the Zoo’s Train Station and train boarding area on Wednesday, June 19.

Teen Volunteer Program

The Louisville Zoo is lucky to have a strong Teen Volunteer program. This year we had over 200 teens who assisted our camp counselors and worked in various animal areas.

Teen recruitment: January 1 – March 1, 2014. Contact mary.taylor@louisvilleky.gov during this time to learn more about how you can become a teen volunteer.
