Tracy Aviary offers a couple of different opportunities for youth and families to volunteer. Please read the following information thoroughly.
Youth 16-18 years of age are welcome to volunteer with any department except Aviculture. This is for the safety of both our birds and our volunteers. If you want experience with bird care or training, we recommend our behind-the-scenes opportunities such as Keeper for a Day and Trainer for a Day. You can also find out more about working in the zoo field here. If you are looking for a volunteer experience, please click the button below to apply for our volunteer program.
Under certain circumstances, Tracy Aviary allows youth under the age of 16 to volunteer in what we refer to as a Family Volunteer Opportunity. We require that an adult always accompanies the child if the volunteer assignment is on Tracy Aviary grounds. Family Volunteer Opportunities are limited, assignments might not always be available, and not all assignments take place at Tracy Aviary.
