Museum of Natural History Volunteer
At the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History each volunteer contributes something special to the vibrant and immersive programs and exhibits. Without our volunteers, what we do to as a nature education center would not be possible!
Joining our volunteer team will give you a fun and enriching experience centered around STEAM (Science, Technology, Art, Math). There are many volunteer opportunities available in our aquarium, interactive science lab, beehive, Marshview Room (including our osprey cam, bird carving demonstrations, and various animals), admissions desk, Science Shop, Mud Kitchen, Butterfly House, and more.
Weekly, monthly, seasonal, and special project volunteers are all welcome. Come join our laid-back and diverse team of life-long learners!
Training is provided in all areas.
About CAPE COD MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY INC
869 Main Street/Route 6A, BREWSTER, MA 02631, US
The mission of the Cape Cod Museum of Natural History is to inspire appreciation, understanding and stewardship of our natural environment through discovery and learning.
The Cape Cod Museum of Natural History integrates the three strands of its organizational identity - as museum of natural history, nature education center, and steward of conservation land.
As a small museum of natural history, we will preserve, exhibit, and interpret our own collections of natural history artifacts and display relevant traveling and loan exhibits. We may also collaborate with local and regional organizations on co-sponsored exhibits.
As a nature education center, we will engage children and adults in high-quality programs, classes, lectures, panel discussions, workshops, films, walks, field trips, traditions and interactive exhibits that reveal the many facets of the natural world and the reciprocal impacts that humans and nature exert on each other. As befits a nature education center, we will explore our potential as a center for citizen scientists and amateur naturalists, and as a forum for informed discussion of important issues related to the natural world, especially on Cape Cod.
As a steward of 400-plus acres of museum-owned land in Stony Brook Valley and Brewster conservation land adjacent to the museum, including Wing's Island, the salt marsh, and the beach along Cape Cod Bay between Quivett and Paine's Creeks, we will monitor and protect the land and focus our programming on its varied habitats - our outdoor classroom and teaching tool. Programs may also take place elsewhere on Cape Cod and in New England when appropriate.
