Volunteer

We Need YOU

Volunteers are essential to the day-to-day operation of the museum.

We have tasks suited to all sorts of interests and for different levels of experience. Practice an old skill or learn a new one. Our youngest volunteers partner with an adult, and our oldest are—well, never mind. All you need is a little time and a willingness to share it with us.

Choose What Works for You

Our volunteers give as much time to the museum as fits their schedule, from once a season to three times a week.

Indoors there are two three-hour shift choices, 10-1 and 1-4, but many volunteers stay the entire day. Volunteers may work in pairs if they prefer. Sometimes whole families, classes, or groups come and do a variety of jobs.

If you love birds, nature, working with groups of people, or wood carving, we have lots of volunteer opportunities for you. Contact us!
