“My advice to anyone that’s considering volunteering but isn’t quite sure would be to just do it! It’s an amazing experience, one you definitely won’t regret. It’s easy to get nervous or feel like you don’t do well here, but it truly is a fantastic place and we could always use one more bright teen as part of the volunteer family.”-Savannah M., Summer 2015 Exhibit Guide alumni, Currently volunteers as an Exhibit Guide and Zoo Docent
