TAP-SF is recruiting volunteers to help at the Oakland Zoo this Summer!

What will we do?
We will be helping with habitat restoration for a 3-hour long outdoor volunteer assignment from 9AM-12Noon on Saturday, August 17, 2019. Work will include removing debris or weeding in and around the animal habitats.

When do I arrive, where do I go and where do I park?
- Volunteering assignment will be from 9AM-12Noon. Please arrive 15 mins prior to start time for check-in.
- Please park in the Lower Parking area and leave all valuables at home and all personal belongings in the trunk of your car. Meeting location will be sent out to volunteers a week before the event.
- Volunteers will not have to pay for parking or admission to the zoo on the day of their volunteer assignment.

What should I wear and bring?
- Please dress for the weather, which can range from very warm to very cold and wet. Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty. We suggest that volunteers dress in layers.
- Bring sun hats, layers, shoes that can get dirty, a water bottle and even a snack.
- Closed-toed shoes with a firm grip (sneakers) are encouraged, as well as long pants and long sleeves.
- We will provide tools, please if possible bring your own gloves.

Additional Information:
- Once the project has been completed, volunteers are welcome to stay in the zoo until closing time at 4:30PM.
- Each volunteer will be given a wrist band which will entitle them to 1 free ride on the Skyride and rides up the Gondola to the CA Trail to reach The Landing Café.
