Top 10 Reasons to Volunteer for Night Eyes at Blank Park Zoo
Night Eyes is not only central Iowa’s premier Halloween event for families to enjoy, it is also a one-of-a kind opportunity to volunteer among trick-or-treaters, costumed storybook characters, and of course, some of the animals of Blank Park Zoo. If you’re looking for a chance to come out to the Zoo this fall, have fun with a group of friends and see merry, not scary Halloween adventures, consider signing up to volunteer!
