Join the Jacksonville Jaycees as we volunteer for the 32nd annual Spooktacular event presented by Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens! This annual event is the zoo’s biggest fundraiser of the year and a spooky good time! Your participation is not only helping us care for our zoo animals, but animals throughout the world through the many conservation efforts JZG supports.

We will pass out candy and greet children as they pass through the Candy Trail. Our volunteer shift is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 26. Volunteers should get to the zoo no later than 5:30 p.m. and can expect to be there until around 10:30-11 p.m.

As a thank you for your participation, the Zoo will offer each volunteer will the option to receive one Spooktacular ticket, one ZOOLights ticket or one general admission Zoo ticket!

Volunteers must be over the age of 14. There is a dress code and form for you to pre-fill out, so please be sure to register if you plan on attending.
