Project Description

Volunteers will help beautify the zoo to help us prepare for our spring and summer season. Projects include spreading mulch, weeding, prepping for painting to name a few.  All supplies will be provided. Dress in layers to able to volunteer outside.  


All volunteers must register/check-in at the Spartan Days of Service kick-off event held in the Business College Complex, Room N130. 

All transportation will depart from the Business College Complex, and you must check in to find which bus is designated for your project.  Upon completion of your service project, you will be dropped off at the Business College.  Parking is available at the College of Law ramp, directly across from the Business College.

During check-in and the program a light breakfast will be available to all volunteers.  Prior to departure, volunteers can select a box lunch, and will receive a Spartan Days of Service t-shirt.  Vegan and gluten free options will be available.
