BPZ GardenKeepers FIN_1

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 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, caring for their plants, watering, fertilizing, and should expect to spend an average of 2 hours per week caring for their garden. 

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





If you have an organized group that is looking for a volunteer activity, please contact our zoo office, or email volunteer@binderparkzoo.org for more specific information.
