Maymont habitats volunteers are needed year round to help out at the Barn and Nature Center. Volunteers work with Animal Keepers and Aquarists to maintain exhibits, prepare diets and participate in animal enrichment programs. Volunteers also educate and inform individuals by answering their questions. Please note: Maymont Farm volunteer positions are outdoor and very physical in nature. An orientation is required to begin.

Maymont Foundation will preserve and celebrate Maymont as a museum and park for the pleasure and education of everyone.
Maymont was the 100-acre Victorian country estate of Major James H. and Sallie May Dooley. The Dooleys completed their opulent mansion in 1893 and spent the next three decades creating the gardens, landscapes and outbuildings you see here today. Upon Mrs. Dooley's death in 1925, Maymont was bequeathed to the City of Richmond . Attractions for visitors added over the years include the Nature Center, Native Virginia Wildlife Exhibits, Children's Farm and Carriage Collection. Since 1975, Maymont has been maintained and operated by the private non-profit Maymont Foundation.
We'll work with your schedule.
