  • They can bring programs to your school, organization meeting or care facility.
  • Docents help with many activities you can participate in while visiting the Zoo, such as Docent in the Zoo, Boo in the Zoo, Spring Forward, Party for the Planet, and many more.
  • Graphics you can see when touring the Zoo.
