VOLUNTEERING AT THE DISCOVERY CENTER

People joke that volunteers run the Discovery Center. It's only partially a joke. Volunteers started the 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 without them. We strive to make time spent here, as it fits in to individual schedules, something that enhances the lives of our volunteers.
