Volunteers offer vital support to the Center in a variety of ways. Volunteers work as boat mates for our river trips, assist with tours of the museum, Pioneer "Cracker" Settlement tours, and nature walks, and help with numerous other projects. State Park volunteers also open the museum and gift shop to the public during weekends.
Volunteer meetings are usually held on a Monday of each month during the school year. Volunteers must complete standard Marion Public Schools Volunteer Application forms and are subject to a Florida Department of Law Enforcement background check.
