Ever thought about what it would be like to glide high above a zoo?

How about making a career out of it?

Elmwood Park Zoo is currently looking for a Treetop Adventures Guide. Treetop Adventures is the zip line course inside the zoo.

Guides are expected to have an outgoing personality, ability to problem-solve, and must follow protocol in the health and well-being of our animals. Guides are key members of the Elmwood Park Zoo staff and operate as the “face” of the zoo.

Adventure guides have the opportunity to work at a number of locations, either indoors or outdoors, throughout the Elmwood Park Zoo. Adventure guides also have the opportunity to help guests daily by answering questions, providing information and assisting with special requests.

Elmwood Park Zoo was established in 1924 when a local farmer transferred 16 acres and a small menagerie to the Borough of Norristown. Today, the zoo is owned and operated by the Norristown Zoological Society, a non-profit organization whose mission is to foster an appreciation for wildlife and the environment that will inspire active participation in conservation. Under the Society’s careful management, Elmwood Park Zoo has attained the elite status as one of only 230 institutions accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums.
