KultureCity Training!

Potter Park Zoo is proud to be a KultureCity Certified Inclusive Location!
KultureCity’s sensory inclusive program is designed to help guests with sensory needs like PTSD, autism, dementia, strokes, etc feel welcomed. They do this by combining training by professionals, sensory bags, and signage.  This program helps ensure the best guest experience for those with sensory needs, ensuring that everyone can attend and have fun. 

In order to maintain our certification, we are required to do annual inclusivity training for our staff and volunteers. Click the button below to get started!







17,000 hours!

You are making a difference!

Every time you come to volunteer at the zoo, you are making a difference! In the lives of the animals, the staff, the children and families who visit us… all of them benefit from the time you invest here.


“Fantastic! I love that there are volunteers/docents who recognize our family and immediately greet my kids and get their quirks.”

“Great program! Great volunteers! Thank you!” 

“The volunteers are always so amazing, the events are perfectly planned and everyone is so kind and accommodating!”
