Volunteers are needed to fill more than 100 slots to make this an enjoyable, safe and successful event. Work at an information table, help out in the exhibitor lunch area, and much more!

Shifts are available: 7 to 9:30 a.m. (set-up), 9:30 a.m. to 12 p.m., and 12 to 2:30 p.m. If you are interested in volunteering but can’t stay for a full shift, let us know what time you are available and we will make it work!

Volunteers get a free shirt, free lunch and a terrific experience! Where else are you going to see a live eagle, owl, falcon, horseshoe crab and several hundred pound python all in one place?
