VOLUNTEER


VOLUNTEERS ARE VITAL
People joke that volunteers run the Discovery Center. It’s only partially a joke. Volunteers started the Discovery Center over 25 years ago and are vital to its success today.

Our volunteers provide invaluable time, knowledge and experience to our programs. We couldn’t do it without them. We strive to make time spent here, as it fits into individual schedules, something that enhances the lives of our volunteers.
