Volunteer Day is usually the first Monday of each month. Come around 10 am to help whittle away at the refrigerator list of tasks. At noon, enjoy a potluck lunch and then head home or help out some more! Other opportunities: helping with field trip groups AND being a docent for the Smithsonian Water/Ways exhibit during August and September. PLEASE NOTE: Instead of the first Monday in July, volunteers and board will team up for a work bee on Wednesday, July 11, 2018. The refrigerator list will be up and volunteers can come and help check tasks off the list at any time during the day or evening. Lunch will be available at noon and there will be pizza at 6pm for those coming later.
Enjoy the hands-on museum, exotic animals, natural history and periodic rooms indoors and then head outdoors to explore. Make music in the Earth Tones Music Garden; discover the geologic history of the earth along the Exploring Beyond Jurassic Park walk, play in the One Room Schoolhouse, have fun at the accessible Tree House and then head over the boardwalk to the Ancient World with its pyramid, sphinx, Roman arch, obelisk and Easter Island head.
