Apply to be a Zoo Mom

What Does It Take?

So what does it take to be on the Zoo Moms Panel? It's all about sharing your passion about Lincoln Children's Zoo! You'll be expected to help answer questions, give tips and be an advocate for the Zoo and our community. 

There are three areas we ask that you make a commitment to fulfilling.

Tell Your Friends About the Zoo

You'll be among the first in the community to know what's happening at the Zoo. Every few months you will be sent a box containing information on new things coming to the Zoo. These boxes will also include tickets, merchandise and more. Invite your friends over to throw a Zoo party and have some fun! 

Connect with Others Who Love the Zoo

The Zoo is loved by so many in Lincoln. Take a few moments each month to connect with other moms, dads and grandparents in the community to share your Zoo and life experiences. 

Share Your Zoo Knowledge 

You are a Zoo expert! Share your insights on visiting, education programs, events and everything else Zoo related. You'll answer questions, offer tips and share your fun moments and memories on the Zoo's Facebook page and website.
