Hello everyone and thank you for your willingness and assistance to help get the Zoo ready for opening day 2017!

Here are a few reminders for individuals and groups coming to clean up the Zoo:

1. On the day you scheduled with me (see schedule below), please arrive at the office located on the left as you walk up the Zoo.

a. During the week, I will be here to greet you and get you connected with Isaac (Ike) Fuenning, the Zoo’s Horticulturalist.

b. During the weekend, Ike will greet your group in the office.

2. For groups bringing multiple shifts of individuals on the weekend:

a. Please plan to have someone from your group stationed at the office when the second (and/or third) groups arrive to let them into the office and show them where Ike is having your group work.

Please see the information below for any questions you might have leading up to your clean up days. If you need anything in the meantime or if you have questions that are not answered from below, please let me know how I can be of assistance!
