An award winning program for a Bloomington/Normal entity is about to get underway with a series of informational meetings this week.
The Miller Park Zoo's Junior Zookeeper programs is very popular and Superintendent of the Miller Park Zoo, Jay Tetzloff indicates they are having a series of meetings this week to get potential volunteers introduced to it.
According to Tetzloff, volunteers are doing a number of things but he feels it's a great learning experience for anyone who might love nature, animals or conservation.
Volunteers that get into the program start somewhat slow in the program but can work their way up as they get older and get more experience. Tetzloff says they will learn a lot of the zoo and animals in general.
The meetings for the Junior Zookeeper program start tonight and run through Thursday from 7 pm to 8 pm and if you want to be in the program you must attend one of the meetings at the Bloomington Zoo.
