Without our volunteers’ help, our jobs would be, to put it simply, harder. The MOR staff “gathered” to share with our Volunteer gratitude.
While we have postponed our April 2020 appreciation luncheon, we are celebrating & thanking you from afar. Here is a look back at our 2019 awards luncheon. Thank you so much for all you do for Museum of the Rockies.
MOR volunteers and docents contributed almost 30,000 hours of volunteer service in 2018. Needless to say, we couldn’t provide many of our museum services without our talented and dedicated volunteers, and they provide vital support to the museum and our community as a whole. In return, MOR volunteers enjoy the camaraderie of working with visitors, staff, and their counterparts; opportunities for life-long learning; and the satisfaction of knowing they are making a valuable contribution.
Volunteer opportunities range from staffing activity carts to preparing fossils, helping with our Museum Family Days, joining a benefit event planning committees, putting together mailings, and giving guided tours. Plus, each summer volunteer interpreters at the Living History Farm demonstrate the day-to-day activities of a Montana farm in the 1890s.
MOR is looking for volunteer docents to give guided tours. If you’re interested in continuing education and would like to give tours to groups of all ages in the museum, then being a docent may be for you. An exciting 12-week training program begins in early September for all new trainees. Registration is through September 1.
