The Amarillo Zoo are looking for volunteers to help clean up the shoreline and grounds of Thompson Park.The cleanup will be held Saturday from 9am to noon.

This is and annual event and it's coordinated each year by the Zoo staff as a way to keep the park looking nice and safe for wildlife and visitors.


At the cleanup last year, nearly a TON of trash was collected.


If you are interested in helping, you should plan to bring a sturdy pair of work gloves and dress appropriately for dirty outside work. Volunteers are asked to meet at the Zoo in Thompson Park.

Once the cleanup is over, a hotdog BBQ will follow the clean up at the Amarillo Zoo.

If you plan on volunteering, you must sign a volunteer service agreement which can be completed the day of or prior to the event.

Please RSVP to the Amarillo Zoo at 806-381-7911.
