BLOOMINGTON -- Miller Park Zoo
is opening registration for one of the most unique programs for
young people in central Illinois. Students who are currently in
fifth grade or higher are eligible to begin participating in Miller
Park Zoo's Junior Zookeeper program this summer.
Participants have the opportunity to take an active role in the
operations of Miller Park Zoo, working with people and animals.
Students begin with classroom training and eventually become
volunteers. They develop leadership and time-management skills while
learning about the way a zoo works.
To receive an application,
students and at least one of their parents or guardians must attend
an informational meeting on March 4, 5 or 7 from 7 to 8 p.m. at
Miller Park Zoo. Reservations are not necessary. There is a
registration fee for this program.
