Description

Thank you for choosing to share your time with the Rice Museum of Rocks and Minerals!

 

This volunteer opportunity is an event with multiple volunteers working with the museum to plant a collection of native plants to seperate the museum picnic area from our storage and maintenance areas. The planting would benefit the local wildlife and improve the visitor space of the museum.

 

Volunteers of all ages are welcome. Volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by an adult for this volunteer program.

Volunteers are asked to bring water, gloves and any preferred tools. 

The museum will provide plants, tools, and a huge amount of gratitude for our volunteers!

 

As a thank you to our volunteers in attendance the museum galleries will be open for you to explore.
