Spooktacular 2010

The Staten Island Zoo is looking for Boy Scouts to help out during the upcoming Spooktacular on October 23rd and 24th 2010. In addition to helping out a community event and receiving community service hours you should  know that the Zoo director Kenneth Mitchell has been a strong supporter and friend to Scouting going back to his time in the City Council.

Help out the Staten Island Zoo  and be part of the biggest and most celebrated Zoo event. Spooktacular takes place on October 24, from 6-9:30 p.m., and October 25, from 5:30-9:00 p.m.

If you would like to volunteer at this event, call the volunteer coordinator at 718-442-3174, ext. 37.
