- 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.
