Interested in AZAD?

AZAD is the Association of Zoo and Aquarium Docents. Membership is open to anyone who volunteers as an educational guide or interpreter at a zoo or aquarium anywhere in the world – that’s you!  It is a wonderful way to be part of a community of people who share a passion for the natural world and a desire to pass that enthusiasm on to others.  Whether it is through interesting articles written by fellow docents in their quarterly newsletter, sharing information, stories, photos, or the latest animal birth on their Facebook page, or meeting docents from across the country at a national conference, AZAD enhances your experience as a docent.  For more information, please visit their website or ask a current AZAD member (Gay Bullock, Gayle Pauley,  or Dave Stentz, just to name a few!)  Membership dues are $20/year – membership forms, as well as patches and pins, are available on their website. Check it out and join today!
