The Arizona Master Naturalist Association (AZMN) is a statewide training and certification program designed to create a corps of volunteers educated to give back volunteer service to partnering organizations that utilize volunteers in outreach programming. AZMN provides education, outreach and interpretive services to a variety of stakeholders including education entities, state and city government agencies, as well as private citizen groups.

Reid Park Zoo’s mission is “to encourage commitment to the conservation of biological diversity and to provide educational and fun experiences for visitors of all ages.”

The Zoo, founded in 1965 with a collection of birds, prairie dogs, farm animals, and a few squirrel monkeys, has expanded to a 24-acre campus that houses hundreds of animals in naturalistic exhibits and annually hosts over 600,000 visitors. Reid Park Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA).
