Become a GardenKeeper and make the zoo BLOOM!

Binder Park Zoo’s GardenKeeper program aims to create beautiful garden spaces that everyone will enjoy at the zoo. It's a fun and satisfying experience for volunteers of all ages and a way to encourage everyone to Connect. Inspire. Conserve.

Whether you are a novice or a master gardener, individuals and groups are invited to become GardenKeepers at Binder Park Zoo! Gardeners are responsible for providing their own plant materials, and for maintaining their gardens throughout the season.

Ready to get your hands dirty? Submit the GardenKeeper form! For more information on becoming a GardenKeeper, email volunteer@binderparkzoo.org for more information.
