Group Volunteer Program

Volunteering at Zoo Atlanta is a great way for your club, community group, or company to build teamwork as well as support the community.

We can schedule days of service that provide your team with an opportunity to support our organization through a hands-on project.

The Group Volunteer program is currently full. We do not have any available service dates at this time. Please check back in July for Fall dates. In the meantime, check out our other Volunteer opportunities.


Group Volunteers assist with projects our Facilities, Maintenance, Horticulture, Events, or Animal Care Teams have identified as areas where they need support. Projects can include but are not limited to painting or staining; horticulture projects such as raking leaves, pruning shrubs, and cutting down browse; cleaning signage; or fixing benches. Projects change based on the season and the needs of the Zoo. Having Group Volunteers assist the Zoo teams with these projects allows our team to accomplish more while also providing groups the opportunity to bond with one another at the Zoo!

Guidelines for volunteering: 

  • Volunteers must be 18 years of age and no longer a high school student.

  • Service days are typically scheduled Monday – Friday for 3 – 4-hour shifts, but this can be flexible.
