  1. Hello,
    My name is Madison Jacobs and I was interested in a cooperative opportunity at your Buttonwood Park Zoo. I attend Tri-County RVTHS where our senior year we are given the opportunity to leave the school grounds bi-weekly for a workplace that is in correspondence to our shop. I am in the Legal and Protective Services shop and I think the Watchperson postion you are looking for would fit both our interests. My email is madisonjacobs26@gmail.com and my phone number is 774-266-8595. If you have any questions feel free to contact me or contact my teachers at ferrick@tri-county.us or harris@tri-county.us. You may also contact our Co-Op director at MacLeod@tri-county.us. Thank you for your time and consideration.
