About the Explorer Post

The Zoo Explorer Post is a coed program of Boy Scouts of America. It is sponsored by the City of Alexandria. Explorers offer volunteer service to the Zoo through a variety of duties that include zookeeper assistance, special events, grounds maintenance, construction and education programs.

Not only will your service help the zoo and its programs, but volunteer work is a great addition to your resume! Orientation and training sessions are held once a year.
