Calling all Nature Loving Teens

Teen volunteer training this month at ABQ BioPark.

Sept. 12, 2018 - Albuquerque teens have a fun alternative to sitting around the house - volunteering at the ABQ BioPark.

Nature Guide training for teens will be from 9:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Sept. 29, 2018, in the ABQ BioPark Aquarium and Botanic Garden Education Building.
"Volunteering is a great way to meet new people, learn about the natural environment and spend time making a difference," said Deborah Cook, ABQ BioPark volunteer specialist.
The BioPark is looking for nature guides ages 14 to 18. No admission fee is required, but participants must fill out an application prior to attending the orientation event. 
More information about positions and a link to the applications can be found here:

This training is for teens only, but attendees can bring a parent. Adults wishing to become a volunteer can attend one of the adult new volunteer orientations, which can be found at

This program continues Mayor Tim Keller’s initiative to expand youth programs in the city.
