Volunteers needed at Nature Museum
Different days & times

Children age 7 and older can join The Nature Museum’s volunteer Docent program. The Nature Museum at Grafton is a small non- profit natural history museum that is open to the public year round on weekends. During the week they provide scheduled programming to schools, home-schoolers and other groups of adults and children. They are located at 186 Townshend Road, Grafton, Vermont.

In order to keep their doors open on weekends they rely on volunteer Docents. A Docent’s duty is to welcomes visitors, introduce them to the museum’s layout and answer questions as they may arise regarding the various displays. The Docent is also responsible for collecting entrance fees and clerking the store sales. All Docents are trained in operation procedures and display interpretation. The Museum does not get heavy use and therefore offers a great opportunity for you and your child (children) to enjoy the museum and for you to do some science instruction through play and observation. E-mail for days/times available or for more information.
