We will begin with a tour of our Zoo so to meet some of the animals we will be helping. Then we will be assisting with habitat clean-up and grounds maintenance.

The mission of Austin Zoo and Animal Sanctuary is to assist animals in need through rescue, rehabilitation and education. We currently have over 300 animals from over 100 different species at the Zoo. Last year, over 175,000 people visited Austin Zoo. Over 32,000 were students and teachers visiting on field trips. Austin Zoo & Animal Sanctuary is a pleasant Hill Country zoo where the people of Austin can come to learn about the animals close-up, spend some time outdoors getting exercise, and have fun. It’s a place where we Austinites can truly make the most of our time together.

Before your project, please join us for a Community Gathering and Mitzvah Day Kickoff at 9 AM in the JCC Community Hall. You can bring items for any of the collection drives to the JCC at this time.
You are more than welcome to bring coolers with drinks and a picnic lunch. We do not have portable water on the zoo grounds.

When you arrive, please enter the Gift Shop.

You are more than welcome to wear shorts, but nothing shorter than the length of your hand above your knee. A shirt with sleeves is necessary and sturdy closed toed shoes are essential. Work gloves are also a must. And rakes if you have them.
