Whale Museum Volunteer Open House

The Whale Museum is holding an open house for anyone interested in volunteering. If you have some spare time and are interested in our marine ecosystem, the museum has something for everyone! The program will take place on April 11. Drop by anytime between 5:30 and 7 pm. Museum staff and volunteer managers will be available to discuss volunteer opportunities and answer questions. Light refreshments will be served.  

On-site volunteer opportunities include becoming a docent to educate visitors about marine mammals and assisting with collections care and digitization. Off-site opportunities include Soundwatch, which educates boaters on the water, and the Stranding Network, which protects and studies distressed marine mammals. For more information, email Museum Curator Rebekah Cousins at rebekah@whalemuseum.org or call (360) 378-4710 ext. 31. 

The Whale Museum’s mission is to promote stewardship of whales and the Salish Sea ecosystem through education and research. In addition to providing exhibits, the Museum also provides programs including: the Orca Adoption Program, Soundwatch Boater Education, Marine Naturalist Training, San Juan Islands Marine Mammal Stranding Network, and the Whale Hotline. The Whale Museum can be found online at www.whalemuseum.org.
