coyotezoo-thumbThe Friends of the Moonridge Zoo are providing their final Introductory Adult Docent Program of the year, which will be held on three consecutive Thursdays, from 11am to 1pm, starting June 18. Those who enjoy learning about wildlife, and working with those who feel the same, are encouraged to participate in the three-class series; the first two sessions will provide the history of the Moonridge Animal Park and their “home for life” animals, and the third class will allow volunteers to explore service opportunities with the animal park and the non-profit that supports it, the Friends of the Moonridge Zoo. Popular choices of volunteer work include preparing food for the animals, gardening, helping during special events, and mingling with zoo guests. To become a docent tour guide, an additional three-day training program is available as of July 9. For more information on training and docent programs at the zoo, call the Friends of the Moonridge Zoo office at 878-4200.
