Come celebrate the holiday season by volunteering at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens annual event ZOOLights! Thousands of LED lights transform the Zoo into a luminous winter wonderland. We are looking for volunteers for a variety of roles from elf helpers, holiday greeters, karaoke carolers and mascots. We would like to welcome back Spooktacular volunteers to assist with this special event.
Volunteers are to dress in holiday themed attire: sweaters, scarves, hats and gloves, even your best Tacky holiday sweater.
ZOOLights will take place December 13 through 31 (excluding Christmas Day) from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. ZOOLights will be closed Christmas day. Volunteers for this event must be at least 14 years old.
