Receptionist in Discovery Shop

Greet and welcome visitors to the beautiful Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Assist at the front desk, answer phones, transfer calls, answer questions, stock merchandise in small gift shop, operate a cash register, and assist with miscellaneous small tasks to help the Naturalists. Must love nature and enjoy visiting with guests!

Work with fun and interesting staff in a beautiful Nature Study Area. Sometimes the Nature Center is busy and active, other times it is quiet and slow. Volunteer receptionists may bring a book, crossword puzzles, etc. to pass the time on slow days, but always be ready to handle the buzz and excitement of guests of all ages, ringing phones, and interesting questions. Receptionists must have a clear phone voice to give directions on how to get to the Nature Center and to answer other questions as needed.

The receptionists help free up the Nature Center Staff to lead programs, help visitors with questions and to take care of emergencies. Our receptionists are very important to us and are the "face" of the Effie Yeaw Nature Center. Training is provided.

We currently need a Tuesday afternoon receptionist, 1pm to 5pm, and a Friday afternoon receptionist, 1pm-5pm. If you can only volunteer on weekends, we are also looking for a Saturday afternoon receptionist, 1pm - 4pm, When you are assigned a given day and shift, you will come in on that day weekly.

We also need a substitute receptionist for weekdays, Tuesday through Friday, 9:00 to 1:00 or 1:00 to 5:00.
If you like random times for volunteering instead of a strict schedule, you may be "on call." We usually know a week or more in advance when we will need a substitute.

When you respond, let me know which shift(s) you would be interested in.
