what our volunteers are saying

Jim Propst

Discovery Room Volunteer

After retiring from the corporate world, I wanted to keep busy, keep learning and do some things that added to the well-being of our communities. I believe that the time I spend assisting in the Discovery Room and other venues within the Museum will have a positive impact on the youth (regardless of age) that visit the Museum and it provides tremendous learning experiences for me.

Mariann Harris

Discovery Room Volunteer

As a retired classroom teacher, I enjoy volunteering in the Discovery Room, interacting with children who are on field trips or with their families who are guests.  It is energizing to help our guests enjoy their museum experiences.

Aidan Dunlay

Youth Volunteer

I like volunteering at the museum because I get to share what I know scientifically with little kids and adults.  I consider it a bonus that I also get to learn from the people I work with and the museum guests. It’s fun and a great experience.

 

Huiping Qin

Exhibition Volunteer

I love to volunteer at Museum at Prairiefire because it provides a great learning experience. From friendly museum staff and renowned guests to intriguing exhibitions and displays, I am constantly learning new things. It also feels great to share what I know with others and to lend a hand when people need it.
