Lend A Hand

Volunteers are an important part of Lynn Meadows Discovery Center.  Working directly with our visitors, planning behind the scenes, building and repairing exhibits, and cleaning the museum are just a few of the ways that our volunteers contribute to our success.

We know how valuable volunteers are to US, but what can YOU gain from your volunteer experience at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center?

  • Meet new people and make new friends
  • Develop communication and leadership skills
  • Share your unique talents with our community

If you are outgoing, friendly and dependable, consider being part of the team at Lynn Meadows Discovery Center.  For information on how you can help, contact Kathleen at 228.897.6039, extension 309.

*Orientation and background check processing are required prior to volunteering.  We ask that our volunteers be 18 years of age or older.
