Volunteer Opportunities

  • Museum docent: Come greet visitors to our museum! Our open hours are 12-4 p.m. Thursday-Sunday. Docents typically volunteer for a two-hour shift at least once a month. We have a particular need for weekend docents.
  • Event support: We host a variety of events and activities throughout the year, and we need volunteers to help plan, promote and staff our events to make sure they run smoothly.
  • Gala Committee: If you have experience in event planning or fundraising, our Champagne Brunch Gala committee would love to have your input for our once a year huge fundraising event
  • Tour Guide: Every year, we give walking and museum tours to hundreds of school-aged children, We are looking for volunteers to lead tour groups of elementary age children with 10-20 children per group.
  • Videography: We film most of our events and speakers, and we’d love to have help with both filming and editing.
  • Native Plants garden: Join our garden crew! Help us to continue restoring the Log House Museum’s native plant garden.
  • Integrated Pest Manager: In order to preserve our historic building, we need to understand the bugs who visit us. We’re looking for a volunteer to keep a bug log for our museum. This is a great opportunity for an entomologist, or anyone who is interested in bugs.

To learn more about specific opportunities, call us at 206-938-5293 or email volunteer@loghousemuseum.org.
