We need you!

Volunteers are such a driving force behind our Museum. Their dedication and drive is evident at each of our sites, from the paleo lab to the orchard. We are always welcoming new volunteers and offer introduction classes which provide the foundation for individuals to learn about each of our sites.

Our Spring 2018 class is past but we will be planning another soon.
